Junior Update – Round 7

A big thanks to everyone for assisting with the Red Shield Appeal last Sunday. Our young players and parents who collected for the Salvos did a fabulous job. An outstanding $11,400 was raised which is a record collection from the Hampton Rovers. This money will go to many families and people in need which is particularly heart-warming to know in this cold weather.
The feedback we’ve received from those we collected from was great and included comments such as “We’ve been waiting for the Rovers to knock.” People told us that they actually put money aside to donate each year. For more on this please read the article.
