Supporting young people in need!

The Western Bulldogs, in partnership with The Salvation Army and Lumo Energy, provided a group of young people from The Salvation Army’s Westcare the opportunity to meet and learn from some of Melbourne’s finest AFL athletes; Nathan Hrovat and Lachie Hunter.

Westcare looks after children who are unable to live with their families for a range of reasons including exposure to family violence, poor parental mental health, parental drug use or deceased parents. Due to these heartbreaking living situations, these young people present a range of behavioural and attachment issues. The Westcare clinic organised was a great opportunity to surround these young people with positive role models and the football clinic created fun drills to encourage them to take part.

“I feel honoured to spend time with these amazing young people! The way they are able to enjoy life after everything they have been through is commendable,” said Bulldogs player Nathan Hrovat.

Lumo Energy values community highly and its support of The Salvation Army extends beyond the traditional expectations of an energy retailer.
