Thanks to all the players, coaches, parents and supporters who attended our BACK TO THE 70s night. We’ve taken a huge step forward in our quest to raise $225K by 22/5 next year! The final figure will be known later in the week. We have an amazing community at SBMT and it was brilliant to see Tigers from all parts of the club celebrating together!
Many will know of the great support provided by two of our amazing volunteers, Fiona and Trevor Lawrence. Recently the club received news that Trevor has unfortunately been diagnosed with cancer and will undergo extensive treatment and rehab over the next 6 to 8 weeks at the Alfred Hospital. Please keep Trevor, Fiona and their family in your thoughts throughout this time.
You can support Trevor and the Alfred Hospital by joining Ciaran Lawrence as he goes Dry this July to raise funds for people, like Trevor, affected by cancer.

It is with great sympathy and sadness that we inform you that Peter O'Brien lost his fight against cancer earlier this morning. For a person who never had a child at our football club, Peter was an amazing contributor and hard-working member of the club for many years. Peter was the Football Club representative on the St. Bede's Old Collegians Committee for many years and always put our club first. He will always be fondly remembered and sadly missed. Peter’s family has been overwhelmed by the tremendous support shown by members of our club in visiting him in hospital over the past couple of weeks and passing on their best wishes to Peter and the family. We will let you know of funeral arrangements once they become available.
To our dear friends at St Bedes/Mentone Tigers, Peter left us at 2am this morning. He had been surrounded by his family all day and died peacefully holding my hand. He told us that he felt so fortunate to have so many wonderful people reach out during his final weeks. Thank you, Kate, Kristie, Chris, Ruby & Diane.
