Last Friday, the Dunsborough community came together to watch and participate in soccer matches to raise money for two local primary schools. Parents and teachers battled it out on the field to fundraise for Dunsborough Primary School and Our Lady of the Cape Primary School. “We have so many events for tourists in Dunsborough, and this event was for the locals, supporting the local Dunsborough schools,” said Daniel Adams, event organiser and an Our Lady of the Cape Primary School dad. “We had huge crowds, and it was awesome to see the kids cheer on their parents and teachers. The sidelines were full of families and people enjoying themselves.” Both games were very close and eventful, the womens game resulted in 3-3, going goal for goal throughout the match. The men’s game resulted in two goals to Dunsborough Primary school who took the trophy home. On the night the Dunsborough Lions Club presented a cheque to the schools for $5000 to be split between them, while Palmers Wine supplied six bottles of wine for prizes. All the money from the canteen as well as the gold coin donations all went to the fundraiser, raising over $8000 for the schools. “This is going to be an awesome annual fundraising event for the Dunsborough community to enjoy. We are looking forward to next year,” Mr Adams said.
