Established late 2012 by Peter FitzSimons (President) and Nick Farr-Jones (Vice President) The Cauliflower Club is a Rugby based charity committed to providing sporting and recreational equipment to enhance the lives of those with a disability, with a bias towards sporting related injuries. We use the power and prestige of Rugby Union, through our members, sponsors, ambassadors, and partners to help raise funds for the Cauliflower Club to make our mission statement a reality.
Peter sees it slightly more artistically …. “Though our boots be hung and our day be done, our mission is to bring together the Rugby core as in days of yore. Let us be a gathering point for the folk, and backs too, who know that having cauliflower ears marks you as a man of honour. We want to harness the spirit and values of the game they play in heaven, and through that to give a helping hand to those who have suffered disabilities.”
Charity funds are raised via the generosity of our growing Australian and overseas expat membership base, through our annual fundraising lunch held in Sydney, and a range of events attached to various Rugby games at Local, Club, State and International levels.
Membership is $50 per year and branded merchandise is available through the Club. If you are interested in joining us – please email us firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition, an optional ‘try fine’ $50 tax-deductible donation is called for every time a Wallaby front rower scores a try.
