Te Puke Sports will once again give back to the community. Following the success of their rugby charity matches supporting breast cancer and anti-domestic violence campaign “It’s Not Ok” this weekend the Te Puke Sports biannual charity match will have a more local feel with proceeds donated to the Te Puke Sports Fire Brigade.
Rebecca Moffat Te Puke Sports Club Manager said it is exciting this year to be supporting a local charity.
“This year we wanted to keep it local and support a local charity, the Te Puke Fire Brigade which is a voluntary organisation. They have always been a good supporter of the club utilising it for a number of their functions, so it is nice to give them something back,” said Moffat.
The jersey designed this year will not only be worn by the Te Puke Sports premier side but also their development team.
“This weekend we have designed a charity jersey in honour of the Te Puke Fire Brigade. We have sold both the development team and premier team jerseys’ this time round; a total of 44 jerseys’ which have been purchased by local businesses, whom will be presented their jersey by the fire brigade after the match,” finished Moffat.
The Te Puke Fire Brigade will have a strong presence on the day, manning the entrance points of the ground and are expected to have several fire engines on site.
All proceeds raised from the day will be donated to the Te Puke Fire Brigade.
