Archived: Tarryn Thomas, Future Football Star: a Tasmanian Aboriginal teenager who was judged BEST PLAYER at the 2015 School Sport Australia’s Australian Football Championships

Tarryn Thomas, Future Football Star

The story of the project

Tarryn Thomas is a Tasmanian Aboriginal teenager who was judged BEST PLAYER at the 2015 School Sport Australia’s Australian Football Championships in Geelong in July 2015. 

Now, he’s been selected to represent Australia in the 2015 School Sport Australia 15 years and under all Australian Team which is travelling to South Africa in January 2016.

The tour is part of School Sport Australia’s international sports program.

Tarryn is a proud pakana lad whose family originates from Cape Barren Island. He is a future leader and an inspiration for all children and young people who strive to achieve a better outcome in their chosen field. Tarryn’s achievements come with hard work and discipline but knows he has a hard road ahead.

For more information about Tarryn, please see the following link:http://www.examiner.com.au/story/3258081/thomas-fo…

What are we asking for?

The total cost of the tour to Johannesburg is in the vicinity of $7000. Tarryn’s family is not in a position to pay this amount and we are therefore seeking financial support from a range of different organisations.

The first deadline is 28 August 2015, by which time Tarryn must have paid a $2000 deposit, with a further $2000 being required by 28 September 2015. We hope to meet the first deadline through funding requests of local businesses.

But the remaining money, we’d like to raise through Pozible.

Thank you in advance for your generosity.

How the funds will be used

The funds will be used for airfares, accommodation, travelling costs in South Africa, and sportswear.
