While CSU Football Club was unable to win back the Headspace Cup trophy on the weekend, the club and its members managed to raise $8000, with more money still to be collected.
A proud tradition on the Bathurst football calendar since its inception back in 2016, the event has previously raised $28,000 for headspace.
CSU FC secretary Josh Willcox said he was pleased with the response from the community.
"Headspace Cup has been really well received, we had people donate any cash they might have on them, a few EFTPOS transactions and we sold a few beanies and wrist bands," he said.
"There's been some huge support, considering COVID."
In previous years, CSU club officials would collect donations at the grounds over the weekend and man the canteen with profits going towards the cause.
But because of coronavirus regulations, no spectators are allowed, so instead organisers relied on an online raffles or donations to raise much needed funds for the organisation.
Mr Willcox said headspace's focus is to help people between the age of 12-25.
"Whether that's helping with mental health issues, study issues or financial strain," he said.
"Pretty much anything to help out people in that age group. All we aim to do is raise some money for them.
"It's the fifth year we've been doing it and we raised well over $30,000 now. They've been huge for us, giving us heaps of stuff that we can donate and advertising. "
Other clubs that donated to the cause included Bathurst City Red Tops, Abercrombie, Bathurst '75, Panorama and Bathurst Athletic.
CSU FC took to Facebook to thank all the clubs that donated to the cause.
"There have been some extremely generous donations made by clubs of the Bathurst district, and their support of this event is much appreciated," the Facebook post said.
CSU FC is waiting for a final figure as Bathurst District Football finalises its donation amount, meaning the figured raised from the weekend could reach or go beyond the $10,000 mark, a massive total considering current financial restraints.
