The sporting rivalry between Southern Cross Care in Port Hedland and Broome was reignited on the 9th and 10th of October 2014.  Shire of Broome President Graeme Campbell officially opened the games held at Bran Nue Dae in Broome, adding to the prestige of the event.   

Port Hedland was the eventual victor, with the team taking out the trophy in front of peers, family and staff. 

“Everyone really enjoyed themselves.  Port Hedland have been training for six months or more, Broome need to get serious about winning it back!” said Trevor OLoughlin, Facilities Support Officer at Bran Nue Dae.

Jodie McGinnis, Regional Manager-Home Care Services added, “A wonderful two days was had by all at the recent Senior Olympics. This year the Olympics were hosted by Bran Nue Dae in Broome.  After weeks of practicing the Port Hedland Team headed up the highway to see if they could retain the trophy.  Congratulations to Port Hedland for winning this year’s event.  A big thank you to all the staff that helped with the event.”

The games have been running for 23 years, first starting in 1991.  The annual contest features a variety of activities including quoits, indoor bowl, sticky ball, tennis ball toss and bean bag toss.  SCC Port Hedland conducted fundraising to cover the costs of uniforms, fuel, accommodation and food for their trip to Broome; successfully raising over $6000.  Click here to read the article about the event featured in the Broome Advertiser.
