The Joint held its first ever “sporting fundraiser” on Sunday 18th February in Sydney when sixteen men came together to enjoy an afternoon of indoor cricket. “It was such a great opportunity to combine my passion for The Joint with my love of sport,” said Clive Levinthal who serves on The Joint’s board and who organised and hosted the event.
