EVERYTHING blue, including the sky, was on parade at Myall Park last Saturday when the Myall Coast Mudcrabs hosted BeyondBlue Day as their chosen charity for 2017.

The hardworking Canteen Committee produced and created an array of baked goodies all beautifully presented with touches of blue ribbon and bags which made for excellent sales from the full crowd who arrived to show their support for our fantastic Blue Day event.

President, David Bright, provided a running commentary during the afternoon on the sound system encouraging supporters to become involved in the Blue Day sales and at the same time kept the crowd up to date with the Rugby scores as well as promoting the culinary delights from the barbecue which was manned by Peter Cameron and Sam Johnston.

In addition to our regular sponsors who were mentioned several times throughout the afternoon, special thanks should also go to Coles, Peekaboo Creations, Mungo Road Surf Shop, Mumms on the Myall, Tea Gardens Hotel, Queens Kitchen, Myall Coast News, Heidi Davidson and the North Queensland Cowboys, all of whom made generous donations for Blue Day.

North Queensland Cowboys (organised by David John) gave us a football jersey which had been personally signed by their players – this jersey was our main raffle for the day which was drawn at the hotel after the game and was won by a very excited Wallamba supporter.

Overall, a hugely successful day allowing the Myall Coast Mudcrabs to send a substantial cheque to the BeyondBlue Foundation to assist in their promotion and support of many Australians suffering from anxiety and depression.

Well done Mudcrabs!
