Athletes Help Raise money for Kidz Wish Foundation

A group of Wollongong Little A’s donated some time last weekend to help out at Figtree McDonalds  to raise money for the  Kidz Wish Foundation.
Club coach Chris Twigg,  along with Jack, Zoe, Hannah, Chloe, Rosie, Elenor, Olivia and Zane helped collect some much needed funds for sick kids in the Illawarra.
All money raised from the Helping Hand Program will be put towards KidzWish’s ‘You Raise Me Up’ campaign – an initiative to fundraise for a new KidzWish Place to deliver therapy services to local kids in need.
The collection tin was very heavy by the end of their 2 hour shift.
Great job!!
