Members of the Bradman Foundation are special. Not only is it through their ongoing support and commitment that our organisation is able to strive towards its mission of realising Sir Donald Bradman’s vision, but time and time again our members are continuously contributing back into the communities in which they live.

And when we come across articles that highlight our members efforts in the wider community we are extremely proud and like to take the time to celebrate their achievements. One such occasion appeared in a recent Club Clipsal publication – please click here to read the article in full.

Bill is involved in a number of charitable fundraisers, including the Cure for Life foundation, the McGrath Foundation and A Start in Life (which supports disadvantaged kids with educational support). He allowed local youths to be photographed with his‘baggy green’ cap (signed by current a legendary Australian cricketers) for a gold coin donation to the Primary Club, which gives disabled people the opportunity in sporting activities.

He has a long history of coaching football (soccer). He was the coach of numerous local cricket teams and is a NSW grade cricket umpire, who has umpired at the SCG. In 2000 he was a pioneer volunteer at the Olympic Games in Sydney, a role which he will reprise next year in London.

From everyone at the Bradman Foundation we wish Bill a speedy recovery and thank him once again for his extensive support over the many years.
