Toogood a worthy winner of Community Award

Bonnie Toogood has been recognised for her contributions to the Western Bulldogs Community Foundation, claiming the Community Award at Saturday’s AFLW Best and Fairest formalities.

Bonnie Toogood has been recognised for her contributions to the Western Bulldogs Community Foundation, claiming the Community Award at Saturday’s AFLW Best and Fairest formalities. 

The 23-year-old was involved in various WBCF programs throughout 2020, highlighting the GOAL Mentoring program as one she learnt a lot from in particular.

“For me it was really important to get involved with the Community Foundation – I weirdly think I took more out doing the GOAL program than what the participants did,” Toogood said during her acceptance speech.

“The whole idea of being a mentor and being able to help someone – I just really loved it, and it was a really cool opportunity to be part of.

“It’s great to be part of a club that offers those programs for us to get involved in and be able to help people.”

WBCF General Manager Kashif Bouns said Toogood’s efforts – particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic – were second to none. 

“2020 as we know was a tough year for everyone, but we as a football club and Community Foundation were really proud to be able to take our programs online and support our community during a very tough period,” Bouns said.

“Taking the programs online did make it a little bit harder for our players to get engaged, but we still had a number of players make a significant contribution throughout the year.

“One player stood out for her significant contributions across all of our programs, and that was Bonnie.”

Toogood was also a joint-winner of the Players’ Player award alongside Bailey Hunt, and finished fifth in the Best and Fairest count with 39 votes.

Captain Ellie Blackburn was named Club Champion for a second time, polling 72 votes.
