About the event
The Sunshine Eights is a day of cricket, supported by local businesses since 2020. The purpose is to raise awareness and funds for issues that aren’t talked about enough -- mental health. Everyone is welcome to sign up and play. The format is made for good times: fast-paced games, eight overs, eight players on a team, with drinks and food available. Sunshine Brewery is sponsoring Gisborne Gold kegs, so you won't go thirsty.
All proceeds go to selected mental health charities like #Hear4U.
The previous two events (formally the Movember Friendly) fundraised around $9k for the Movember Foundation. This year they're hoping to have a local impact by supporting charitable group #Hear4U who advocates for men's mental health here in Tairāwhiti.
Keen to join? You can sign up as a team or as an individual here. Either way, it'll be a great day out for a great cause.
