Members of the Thunder Nation and front office staff recently supported the Beards and BBQ Event, hosted by the Exodus Foundation in Ashfield.
Thimothy Shanon, who recently represented Sri Lanka at the HomeWorld Thunder Nation Cup, was on hand to help volunteer at the event, which included a game of cricket for the guests before moving inside for a sit-down lunch.
“I would say that it was a great blessing for me to be part of the Exodus Foundation as volunteer to help poor and homeless people and to see them smile. I am very passionate about helping poor people and it was a good experience for me to be part of this event,” Shanon said.
“Serving others always costs something because you have to sacrifice your time, money and energy but none of these are worth comparing to the joy and peace that you get internally.”
The HomeWorld Thunder Nation Cup has provided a great opportunity for Shanon to connect with his community and culture, whilst also further developing an appreciation for other cultures.
“It was a great opportunity for me to be part of HomeWorld Thunder Nation Cup. I have been very fortunate to play for Sri Lankan team,” Shanon said.
“The Thunder Nation Cup has helped me to be sensitive to diverse people’s groups & cultures and I also do highly appreciate and value all resources, both human and otherwise.”
