Cricket club brothers in car rally for cancer research

Southern Spirit Cricket Club life members, brothers Stuart and Mark Simpson, are taking part in a car rally to raise money for the Cancer Council.

"We will be driving our 1991 Toyota Camry Executive Sedan Limo from Wollongong to Mackay.

"Our older brother, Neale, contracted cancer. After a long battle, he passed away in 2021.

Mark was determined to promote and raise funds for cancer research and sees the rally as a perfect opportunity.

"The rally is the largest community-led fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 12th year.

"Part of the participation is that all teams have to raise a minimum of $5000 but most teams raise well above this amount.

"These funds go to the Cancer Council and we are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity."

Mark was a member of Woy Woy Cricket Club for many years, and played, coached and served on the club and district committees .

His three boys also played Woy Woy juniors and seniors.

Mark, through his business Anytime Fitness, has also been a long-time sponsor of the Southern Spirit club.

Stuart has been a member of both Woy Woy and Southern Spirit cricket clubs as a player and serving on committees for both clubs.

He and stepson Lachlan McDonald are still active members of Southern Spirit.

"Cancer has affected everyone of us in one way or another, and we feel that this is a cause worthy of our time and money."

To support or sponsor the brothers, contact Stuart on 0422 144 972.
