Your footy uniforms arrive in the Pacific Islands
In August, a call out was made to AFL NSW/ACT community football clubs to send donations of old or unused uniforms and equipment to AFL NSW/ACT HQ, to pass on to the growing AFL community in the South Pacific.
The call was heard with over 15 boxes worth of goods landing at Moore Park to be shared and now, first reports of the uniforms finding new homes are coming through.
Development Manager for the South Pacific, Ben Drew says that goods have landed in places such as Kimbe, West New Britain Island in Papua New Guinea, greeted by the smiling faces synonymous with the region.
“Thank you to everyone who donated, everything will find a great new home in the Pacific Islands over the next six months,” said Drew.
AFL NSW/ACT Community Football Coordinator, Jacinta Houston says it is wonderful to see AFL NSW/ACT community clubs giving back to the wider AFL community.
“It was great to have so many clubs jump on board to donate their old kits, and to see the positive impact it has on various communities in other parts of the world,” said Houston.
“We hope we can contribute to growing our great game within the region.”
AFL NSW/ACT would like to thank all the clubs who contributed to the 2017 uniform drive.
