The Blues Visit RI

At the end of last term we were collecting pre-loved rugby and football boots on behalf of The Blues and the Best Foot Forward campaign. One in three New Zealand children live in poverty and cost is the biggest barrier to them playing sport. We don’t want youngsters to miss out on the joys of playing with a team because of financial reasons. Best Foot Forward is a programme to gift recycled boots to youngsters who might otherwise miss out on playing sport.

Thank you to everyone who supported us in this campaign, we had such a great response.

At the start of this term The Blues visited the school to collect the boots that were donated. The children had a great afternoon listening to the players talk and have fun with different challenges! There was then the opportunity to meet them and have memorabilia signed. What a great campaign for all!
