Mavis Morrison, one of the clients in Arcare Pimpama’s Laurel community is without a doubt the Brisbane Broncos biggest fan!
She watches their games every Friday night and cheers them on all the way from her suite at Arcare Pimpama.
After learning about Mavis’ love for the team and the sport, a Personal Support Worker took the initiative to email the Brisbane Broncos team and a representative soon replied.
To everyone’s delight, they sent over a package full of their merchandise and a letter thanking Mavis for her constant support.
Mavis was so excited when she opened the package that she started crying happy tears.
When asked about what she would like to say to her favourite Broncos team, Mavis said, ‘Oh gosh! Thank you Broncos, now get going and beat these other teams!’
And with much enthusiasm and pride, Mavis was quick to put on the famous maroon colours.
