Williamson Group Supports Mildura United Soccer Club

24 January 2013

Through our Social Impact program, LV has had an ongoing relationship with the Mildura United Soccer Club, working to support disadvantaged indigenous children. 

A group from the 2012 Williamson Community Leadership Program, working with the soccer club for their community project, has forged a partnership with the Melbourne Heart A-League Club and an affiliation with the Reagan Milstein Foundation, which donated reconditioned soccer boots, 50 soccer balls, ball pumps and bibs.

Thanks to the work of the Williamson group, last weekend twelve of the soccer players from the Mildura United Soccer Club were given the chance to play at the half-time break during the Melbourne Heart – Adelaide clash at AAMI Park. They were involved in a soccer clinic on St Kilda Beach run by Melbourne Heart players the next day and were treated to a free trip to Luna Park.
