Fund raising for the Australian Junior World Pétanque Championship Team

The PFA has it’s first fund-raising effort in association with the Australian Sports Foundation is the HELP GET OUR JUNIORS TO CHINA campaign.

They are looking to raise $10,000 to cover the travel costs of their  4 junior players Bronson Romani, Logan Romani, Zac Diep Nicholson and Khrishika Ramjuttun who are representing Australia in the Junior World Championships in Kaihua, Zhejiang Province, China in November.

The PFA really needs all your help with this, otherwise the cost of getting these great young players to the championship falls on their parents.

The link to the PFA Development Fund is here.

Please share the attached flyer and spread the word with your community of friends, business contacts and any other potential sponsors, it doesn’t matter how big or small the donation is, they will all help to get these guys to China.
