The Grassroots Sports Club (GSC) was established in 2008 by three members of an amateur football club. The club was struggling to raise funds for an Under-18 team that provided a positive environment for a diverse group of young men. Knowing that without this footy team many of the players wouldn’t have the means to participate in sport at all, the three men organised some mates and hosted the first GSC lunch. The event raised enough money to pay for club registrations, boots and footy jumpers for the members of the team who required financial support.
Butler, McIntyre & Butler Lawyers are proud to support the Grassroots Sports Club and their activities in the local community.
