BLUES giving back.
As part of the Club’s community camp, a number of Carlton’s senior players ventured to Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre for a special Saturday morning.
Carlton defender Lachie Plowman said the camp represented an opportunity to “give back” to those who needed it.
He was joined by Patrick Cripps, Ed Curnow, Zac Fisher, Matthew Kreuzer, Marc Murphy and Jack Newnes at the Parkville centre.
“Part of what we do in our camps is to get out into the community and give back. There was a big group of us who were designated to go to the Peter Mac Cancer Centre,” Plowman said.
“They’re going through a difficult time so it was good to go there, see the smiles and the joy we can give to them and brighten up their day.
“It was important to hear their stories and hear what they’re going through.
“We saw a few Carlton supporters as well, so it was good to talk footy with them and just to give them a bit of confidence and something to put a smile on their face.”
Whenever Collingwood hosts Carlton in the AFL season, the two old rivals play off for the Peter Mac Cup, raising money for cancer research.
