The Brisbane Barmies held their annual charity golf day on Friday, 16th August. The event saw over a hundred golfers attend and an incredible $7,285 raised for Mater Little Miracles, a charity that supports premature and unhealthy babies out in South Brisbane. You can read more about the charity on their website, but their work is perhaps best summed up by a quote directly from them:

‘Every baby born at Mater is a 'Mater Little Miracle'. But sadly, not all babies are born healthy. Some are born premature, are seriously ill, or are simply too small to go straight home with their parents. That’s why we’re dedicated to providing the best possible start to life for the seriously ill and premature babies cared for at Mater – by raising vital funds through Mater Little Miracles.’

A great day from start to finish saw McLeod Country Golf Club host the Brisbane Barmies’ annual event, as the total amount raised for Mater Little Miracles over the past three years went past the $15,000 mark. This represents an absolutely stunning effort from everyone involved, and here’s to many more golf days over the coming years.

Our Aussie cousins

Roger Hunter, from the Brisbane Barmies, explained that ‘in 2020, we have the intention to make this golf day even bigger … without your generosity, we would not have been able to make this happen’.

We at the Barmy Army continue to offer our support for such a great cause through sponsorship, and could not be more proud of the fantastic work our Aussie cousins have put in. We look forward to catching up with everyone in the Brisbane Barmies next year during the World T20, which is being held down under.

Once again, from everyone here at the Barmy Army, a huge congratulations to the Brisbane Barmies for a highly successful day.
