Footy Tipping for the win at Arcare North Lakes

As per every year, the footy fans at Arcare North Lakes  wouldn’t miss the annual NRL season for anything. Many of the residents get into the spirit of good competition and look forward to placing their footy tips each week. The start of the year was a bit hazy as Covid-19 held its challenges for all sports across the board. 

But when games safely started back up again, the residents brought out their footy gear to cheer on their favourite teams, especially the Brisbane Broncos.

It was great to have the games on again to watch together and many enjoyed the witty banter and exchanges between the teams.

The team members finally tallied the numbers and had prizes out with 1st place going to Marie, 2nd place Ed and 3rd place was a draw with winners, John & Thelma.

The residents were so pleased when the Arcare North Lakes lifestyle team came around and presented them with their prizes from their favourite teams. Lifestyle asked Thelma and Ed if they had chosen a name for their Bronco. Thelma said that she would call hers ‘Banjo the bronco’. All of their faces beamed with joy as they sat proudly with their prizes.

Whether you’re a Bronco’s fan, suppor the Rabbitohs, or stand behind the Melbourne storm, I think we can all agree, Arcare North Lakes cannot wait until it all kicks back up again next year.
