Ever wondered what we do with the old kit?
Recently we teamed up with the Rotary club to look at how we might find a good home for our old kit. We were delighted to find out that a group of dedicated school leavers embark on a 'Leavers' journey a lot different from what we would all expect. The team of 'Leavers' set off to Timor where they help out local communities in whatever ways they can. In this instance they filled their backpacks up with our kits and carried them to those children less fortunate than most.
See the pictures and short write up below – it appears that the timing couldn't have been better. The next run, next 'Leavers' will likely focus on football boot donations…watch this space for more details and how you can help in the future."
Fiona McFarlane, the Team Leader for the Rotary Timor L'este Leavers program, accompanied the team of 14 school leavers from Kalamunda to Timor L'este in December 2015 and presented the team with playing shirts donated by Joondalup City FC.
Fiona commented..."The football jumpers were a great hit and very much appreciated - just in time for the "Hauba Soccer Championships" which kicked off on the 9th December. The assistant to Timor Leste's President was there to start the championships off - she was most impressed with the generous donation."
