By MonarchRepublic - 1 November 2011 3

OPEN INVITATION THIS SUNDAY 6 NOVEMBER 2011 – FIRST BLOKE’S XI vs AUSTRALIAN TRANSPLANT CRICKET CLUB

Pack up a picnic and bring the family and friends this Sunday 6 November 2011 to Phillip Park, Woden to cheer on the First Bloke’s XI versus the Australian Transplant Cricket Club from 11am – 4pm.
 
The Prime Minister’s partner Tim Mathieson will lead the ‘First Bloke’s XI’ against the Australian Transplant Cricket Club (ATCC). The Club is an inspiring team of cricketers who are all organ and tissue transplant recipients and have been given a “second innings of life”.

Come along and enjoy the match in a fun and relaxed atmosphere and cheer on the players for a good cause – raising awareness of organ and tissue donation.

Entry is free.

So the First Bloke is going to try to beat some organ transplant recipients?! Seriously though, this is fantastic. Gonna have to get along, have a laugh and watch some quality beer-grade cricket.

Well I reckon that’s simply oustanding. Big ups to the First Bloke, his mates, and the members of the ATCC.

It’s great to see such good works combined with a dose of self-deprecatory humour. My opinion of the First Bloke has gone up 100%.

And extra points to the ATCC of course, for showing the Poms how to play the game. 🙂
