Ms Bligh served as Patron of South Brisbane District Cricket Club from 2008 until 2013 when she left parliament and moved to Sydney.

Ms Bligh was Premier of Queensland and the member for South Brisbane.

Her patronage led to grants for equipment at the club and after the devastating floods of 2010/11, her government, and the Council led by then Lord Mayor (later Premier) Campbell Newman, providing Grants to assist in the rebuild of the clubhouse and facilities.

The club wishes our former patron well in her future and wish her a full recovery from her publicised health issues.
