Tigers make time for Cheshire Home children

The players with the coach and officials took the time to sit with the children and share goodie bags containing food, drinks and Tigers merchandise. 

Inclusive Education Program Coordinator, Suemylee Uriah, said it really meant a lot to the 108 children of Cheshire Inclusive School.

“We only see these players on TV, so for the children here to actually meet them is a really big thing.

“It will motivate them and make them see that commitment and discipline will take them places and give them the belief that they too can be whatever they want to be.”

Christmas comes to Cheshire Home

Staff from ANG’s corporate quality and safety department brought the Christmas spirit to the children.

Group leader Sonia Sebulon said from their own initiatives the team bought presents from money raised by their social club this year.

“We were able to buy little things like chocolate, sweet biscuits, fruits, toiletries, tinned food and rice. But most importantly, seeing smiles on the faces of these children gave us great satisfaction,’’ she said.
