GOAL Jersey Day – This Friday

GOAL Jersey Day – This Friday

Friday 13th October sees the 35th year of the annual GOAL Jersey Day. This great event is designed to help raise funds and much needed awareness of the role that GOAL plays in its lifesaving work across the world.

Over the 35 years of this campaign over €5 million has been raised to support work in 13 countries across Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and Ukraine.

This year Old Wesley is attempting to become the 1st Rugby Club to fully support this initiative by having every player in the club wear a Jersey of their own choosing, no matter what sport, county, club, country etc, at training next week ( Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday or even next weekend for Minis and Youths) and simply take a picture of your team proudly wearing your own colours in order to support this very worthy cause.

We have a special online donation page set up to allow everyone to simply donate €5 for taking part, please donate via this link  https://jerseyday.raisely.com/old-wesley-rugby-club .

The club is donating €250 to help kick start the initiative and we really want to see if we can hit our target of €1,000 raised and become the 1st club in the country to have all its teams support GOAL and their ambition to grow Jersey Day across all sporting organisations in the Country.

We would ask each Team Coach or Manager to arrange with their players this week to have a photo taken and post them on social with the #WesGOALJerseyDay and tag @GOALGlobal and @oldwesleyrfc we can compile these for our social media campaign.

Even if you are not a player you can still take part with your family and snap a pic of you in your favourite jersey.
