Field of Dreams: Salvation Army

The North Queensland Toyota Cowboys' Field of Dreams program and Stockland Townsville will be making it possible for 30 clients of the Salvos to have a night out at the Cowboys v Roosters game at 1300SMILES Stadium tonight.

The Salvation Army’s Townsville Recovery Service operates a 33-bed residential rehabilitation facility for men and women over the age of 18 who are seeking recovery from addiction to alcohol, other drugs and gambling.

“Few lives are untouched today by the major social problems associated with drugs and alcohol," Claire Twivey from the Salvos said.  

"It's important to know that there is help and support available and the Salvos is one such support mechanism.

“We provide holistic treatment and support for people in some of the most trialling times of their lives and believe that each person who walks through our doors deserves the opportunity to live free from addiction.

"We feel privileged to be able to journey alongside these men and women, to a point where they experience hope, healing and personal wholeness.

“The North Queensland Cowboys Field of Dreams is a fantastic initiative and Stockland's generosity in providing game tickets means that our clients can relax and spend some extra social time together.” 

Since it began, the Cowboys Field of Dreams program has given over 2,500 special individuals in the community the opportunity to attend a Cowboys game to watch their heroes live in action at 1300SMILES Stadium.
