Footy boots for good cause

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Front Page - BY ROBERT MUIR

Do you have any foot­ball boots in good con­di­tion which no longer fit or you no longer use?

If so, it would be very much ap­pre­ci­ated if you could clean them up and hand them into Sa­cred Heart Pri­mary School’s gen­eral of­fice.

Com­mu­nity-minded young­ster, Mitch Ad­kins of Mul­wala, wants to help the Abo­rig­i­nal com­mu­nity in Arn­hem Land where former lo­cal Bernie Price is a school teacher.

“My two big­gest pas­sions are help­ing peo­ple and the Rich­mond Tigers,” 11-year-old Year 6 stu­dent Mitch said.

“I got in touch with my school prin­ci­pal to see if we could col­lect used foot­ball boots or any foot­ball equip­ment and see if the lo­cal clubs may get on­board to help.”

Mitch’s proud par­ents are Lisa and Steve Ad­kins. “Mul­wala Foot­ball Net­ball Club has do­nated wa­ter bot­tles, sin­glets and polo shirts which were very much ap­pre­ci­ated,” Lisa said.

“And Vicki Bye’s shop Time for a Cof­fee has do­nated $20 which was also very much ap­pre­ci­ated.”

Foot­ball boots and any other footy equip­ment are be­ing called for by Mitch Ad­kins, for a wor­thy cause.
