Queanbeyan Tigers Solomon Islands Project
It’s an end of season trip with a difference as some of our men and women will partner with community projects in the Solomon Islands to build a fresh water supply for a refuge for orphans and women. The players will also make donations to local communities and spend some time passing on AFL skills to the Solomon Island locals.
This is a unique initiative that the Club is very proud of – our players and volunteers are giving up their own time – to help some of the poorest communities in the Pacific.
The trip will be led by our Club Chaplain, Scott Minchin who travelled to the Solomon Islands as a Defence Member in 2016. Upon his return members of the Queanbeyan Tigers Australian Football Club playing group approached him about making a trip as a playing team to support initiatives in the Solomon Islands and to take the opportunity to do something unique in AFL circles.
