Lugarno FC donated $4,000 to Moving Forward when Club President Hagop Tchamkertenian met Jan Christie Manager of Moving Forward on Saturday 29 June 2019. Lugarno FC was presented with a certificate of appreciation.
The funds were raised during Lugarno FC’s pink socks weekend on 24-26 May when Lugarno FC teams from the under 6’s to the over 45’s including the Football Focus player development program teams participated in the fundraiser.
Moving forward is a Specialist Domestic Violence Case Management Service. When women and children experience domestic and family abuse they require a specialist trauma informed approach for support. Moving Forward offers practical support for them to rebuild their lives which includes, among many supports, safe housing and financial independence.
They also offer therapeutic support through their workshops to help women understand the trauma and to heal and move forward to live safe, healthy and productive lives.
