“Congratulations on a terrific program”

On behalf of my daughter Noor and I, I wanted to thank you for the wonderful day we had at the Carlton/Melbourne game at the MCG yesterday.

Noor was so excited to participate in the guard of honour for the players and loved every minute of being there, and we got to see a great game of footy as well.

Congratulations on a terrific program and many thanks again,

“To say he loved the experience would be an understatement”

Just wanting to pass on my thanks to you and Carlton for extending this opportunity to Ollie. To say he loved the experience would be an understatement.

He won’t stop talking about it. Shame the boys couldn’t get up in the end, it would have capped off a perfect day.

Cheers Paul

“I believe we are no longer producing great footballers, but producing great human beings”

Firstly, I want to say a big thank you to the Carlton Football Club and the Blues Foundation for this incredible initiative, with Carlton Respects.

From the comments on the Facebook page, it is evident so much work is still needed in this area for people to understand the seriousness. But using a platform like AFL football, and AFLW football is a great step in the right direction to get that message out there and to witness serious change.

I am so proud to be a Carlton supporter, which used to be because of the club’s past successes. Now, it is for the incredible people involved in this great club. I also know the future is bright on the field, and success is not far away. I believe we are no longer producing great footballers, but producing great human beings. Thank you for that.

I look forward to watching this area of our great club growing, and creating serious change in our community. Personally, I hope I can somehow support these causes and help the club the best way I can.

All the very best and a big sincere THANK YOU!

Warm regards,
