Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs halfback Moses Mbye this week visited Yagoona Public School to launch the ‘Kitting Up’ program that has been established in partnership with Canterbury Clothing Company.
Bulldogs in the Community and Canterbury Clothing Company are looking to increase participation numbers and have junior players within schools wear their jersey with pride by ‘kitting up’ 15 local schools across the Auburn, Bankstown, Canterbury and Liverpool areas.
Canterbury Clothing Company produced a new set of jerseys for Yagoona Public School to use which will replace their old and ‘tired’ jerseys.
“Schools don’t have the funds to provide new playing kits each year and to have a partner like Canterbury willing to donate a number of sets, would really ease the worry the teachers may have around getting new jerseys,” Mbye said.
“I know when I went to school we had the same jerseys for a number of years but I think the kids will get a real sense of excitement knowing that they are able to pull on a new jersey when they go up against other schools at sporting events.”
This is the first donation for the year with a number of other visits to be made in the coming months. Stay tuned to the Bulldogs website for more donation news.
