Queenscliff Football Netball Club

Inaugural ‘Hand Up Cup’

This week our A Grade netballers and Senior footballers will be playing against Drysdale for the inaugural Hand Up Cup. Our aim is to promote the need for greater education about mental health. In recent years, both clubs have lost much-loved and valued members following battles with mental health.

Queenscliff FNC and Drysdale FNC stand committed to continue the discussion around mental health and this year we begin our contest for the Hand Up Cup. The message behind the naming of the cup is two-fold. It means that individuals can put their ‘hand up’ and acknowledge that they are going through difficult times. It also encourages others to give their mate a ‘hand up’ as a show of support with their challenges.

As club members and followers, you will have the opportunity to support us in our endeavours to ‘keep the conversation going’. At the game, you will be able to contribute much needed funds to Read the Play; a Geelong based organisation that focuses on youth mental health and community connection. Donations can be made at our canteen and bars.
