Fundraising for a good cause
Indie College’s offices were extra colourful on Friday August 27.
Staff donned their team guernseys, scarves and beanies for Footy Colours Day, a national fundraising event.
Indie College staff helped raise over $1,400 for the Fight Cancer Foundation.
Money raised through Footy Colours Day funds Fight Cancer Foundation’s education support programs. These programs operate in major paediatric hospitals to help kids with cancer keep up with school while they are in hospital.
We thank everyone for their generous donations and look forward to hosting this event again next year.

Who does the Fight Cancer Foundation assist?
“Every year, more than 950 children and young people aged 0-19 are diagnosed with cancer in Australia. These kids are absent from school for long periods of time as they go through cancer treatment and recovery. Many drop class levels when they return to school, become isolated from their friends and disengage from their education.
All the money we raise through Footy Colours Day funds Fight Cancer Foundation’s education support programs, which help kids with cancer keep up with school during cancer treatment and recovery.
Our education programs fight to reduce the long-term impact of cancer and help kids with cancer get back to doing what they do best – being a kid!”
