The work of the Salvation Army will be in the spotlight on Saturday night when the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys’ Field of Dreams initiative, sponsored by Stockland, make it possible for 30 clients of Grace Cottage, residents of Townsville Recovery Services and staff to enjoy very special night out at the Cowboys v Raiders game at 1300SMILES Stadium.
A feature at each home game, the Cowboys Field of Dreams program has given over 2,500 individuals in the community the opportunity to attend a Cowboys game to watch their heroes live in action.
“Each game day, one of our Field of Dreams sponsors donates 30 home game tickets to a charity in recognition of their valuable contributions to our local community. Stockland’s generous support for the program means that everyone attending the game will get to learn about the Salvation Army’s Grace Cottage, its services and its availability to help,” Cowboys general manager community, Fiona Pelling said.
The Salvation Army’s Grace Cottage provide a support network for women who either know people affected by addiction or are in recovery from addiction themselves. Their holistic approach focuses on personal wholeness for every woman through mental, physical and spiritual well-being.
“The Cowboys Field of Dreams is a fantastic program and the generosity of Stockland in providing game tickets means that our clients and staff can relax, forget their cares for a while and spend some extra social time together while watching the amazing Cowboys in action,” Grace Cottage case worker, Lee Johnson said.
