Bernborough Tavern raffle funds go to local soccer club

The Oakey Soccer Club will now be able to purchase new soccer balls thanks to a $535 donation from the Bernborough Tavern’s Community Chest program.


Community Chest raffle coordinator John Webster and Michael Carpenter owner of the Bernborough Tavern with Ray, Sean and Chelsea Cooper from the Oakey Soccer Club.

The local club was the recipient of funds raised through raffles coordinated by John Webster during the month of December.

Ray Cooper thanked the Tavern and Mr Webster for the donation and said the funds will go to purchasing new training balls for the younger players.

He said the club is getting ready for the 2022 competition to commence in mid-March.

Mr Cooper said the MiniRoos program which is open to children between five and 11 years will begin slightly later after the school holidays.

Proceeds from this month’s raffles will go to the PCYC Oakey Connect program which runs initiatives in the community and with schools to support local young people.

The Community Chest raffles are drawn at the Bernborough Tavern on Saturday at about 1.30pm.

There are several prizes to be won as part of the weekly raffles.
