The Lithgow Bears have teamed up with one of their sponsors, LINC, to host a fun game of football for children and adults with special needs and intellectual disabilities within the Lithgow.
President of the Lithgow Bears Football Club Ben Spittles said the idea came about at a committee meeting where they discussed ways they could give back to the community.
"What better way to give back to the community than to put a game on like this, especially with LINC being one of our many sponsors," Spittles said.
Mr Spittles said it was important because there aren't many options in Lithgow for people with disabilities to participate in sport.
"It's a way our club can make them feel equal and involved in a community sporting team," he said.
Mr Spittles said the club definitely wants to keep this going in the future.
"Our number one goal is that the participants enjoy it and we have the numbers," he said.
The ladies league tag plays at 1pm, with the community game beginning at 2pm before the men's team take the field at Tony Luchetti Sportsground at 2.30pm.
There will also be a Mother's Day raffle along with other raffles and a canteen.
"All participants will receive a bag of gifts proudly donated by the Bears, R&K Workwear and Embroidery, Ferrero, Centennial Coal, Energy Australia, 58 on George and Sportspower," he said.
"We hope to get plenty of numbers and a good crowd to support this game and our first home game of the season."
