malvern marlins raise $1000 

Malvern Marlins

On the 10th February, the Malvern Marlins Masters Swimming Club hosted a community fundraising event during their 26th Annual Interclub meet at the Harold Holt Swim Centre in Glen Iris.

As in previous years, all proceeds from the sale of raffle tickets on the night were donated to Ardoch. The raffle tickets generated $789 and the club generously rounded it up to $1000. 

Since 2007, the Malvern Marlins have been passionate supporters of Ardoch’s work, and the cause is one close to their hearts.

“The fact that contributions have been used to fund swimming lessons and equipment for local underprivileged families has helped keep the charity relevant for club members” said Treasurer of the Malvern Marlins, Alan Knights “There is also a great deal of satisfaction in knowing that the Marlins are able to help those less fortunate”.

The money raised will go towards swimming lessons and equipment for children at South Yarra Pre-School. A second fundraising event will be held later in the year.

Ardoch would like to thank the Malvern Marlins for their continued support.
