The Antony Stott Memorial Fund to raise money and awareness for the campaign to have defibrillators at every Football South Coast ground will remain open after recently surpassing more than $8,600 in donations.
Players from the Thirroul Thunder and Sandon Point Division 2 Community League teams, who were playing in the match at Gibson Park on July 16 in which Antony tragically passed away, came together on the eve of their grand final to promote the fund and the need for defibrillators at grounds.
Thirroul JFC is fortunate to have received a defibrillator donated by the Austinmer Otters and it was on hand at the Community League grand finals at Ian McLennan Oval on September 17.
However, many clubs do not have a defibrillator and Antony's family started the campaign on chuffed.org to have the life saving devices available at all grounds.
The story aired on the WIN television news the night before the grand final, won 1-0 by Sandon Point, and it has since been decided to keep the fund open until at least October 25.
