Supermarket giant ALDI was a willing partner with Football Federation Australia when the floods devastated many communities in the Far North Coast and during Cyclone Debbie in North QLD.
Closer to home, Kyogle FC and Tumbulgum Rangers Sports Club were impacted by significant inundation to their facilities, with loss of canteen goods and equipment causing heartache for the respective community clubs. Football Federation Australia, working with several valued strategic partners, including ALDI, made offers of assistance that included $1,500.00 worth of “in store” vouchers and Kyogle FC and Tumbulgum Rangers Sports Club were recently presented with $750.00 worth of vouchers each.
Dylan Ribton-Turner, President of Kyogle FC was on hand to accept the vouchers at the ALDI’s Lismore store. Mr Ribton-Turner said that assistance like this wonderful gesture from ALDI has inspired club members and the community to rebound after the flood that saw several metres of water across the fields, causing damage and loss. Brian Breckenridge, Life Member and long term club stalwart at Tumbulgum Rangers Sports Club accepted the vouchers with appreciation on behalf of that club, saying, “This flood was particularly heartbreaking for our community and we have been amazed by the support such as this offer from ALDI.”
ALDI MiniRoos is the biggest junior football program in Australia with 220,000 youngsters aged between four and 11 playing in the official FFA Kick-Off programs or in one of the 2000 clubs across the country.
