Young­sters help de­sign rugby jersey

The Tribune (NZ) - - COMMUNITY -

The chil­dren of MidCen­tral DHB’s child de­vel­op­ment ser­vice have joined up with the Manawatu Tur­bos to help de­sign a unique jersey for the team’s third an­nual char­ity jersey game in Septem­ber.

Split into sev­eral groups, the chil­dren were supplied with green marker pens and an out­line of the jersey.

Some tack­led the sleeves while oth­ers took on the front and back.

They were joined by sev­eral mem­bers of the Tur­bos squad, in­clud­ing cap­tain Cal­lum Gib­bins, who talked to the chil­dren and signed au­to­graphs.

A va­ri­ety of ob­jects rang­ing from flow­ers to jet air­craft all found their way on to the shirt.

The de­sign will be scanned and printed on to the match jersey to be worn when the Tur­bos play Can­ter­bury on Septem­ber 3 at the Oval.

A one- off print run of the jer­seys will also be avail­able to buy with the pro­ceeds go­ing to­wards pur­chas­ing an elec­tric buggy for the child de­vel­op­ment ser­vice.

Last year’s game ben­e­fited Palmer­ston North Hos­pi­tal’s neona­tal unit, and 2013’ s went to­wards new tele­vi­sions for the chil­dren’s ward.
