The Burdekin Association is proud to have become a community partner of the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles who have a huge following on the Northern Beaches as a major contributor to our local community. Burdekin were the game day community partner for the game against the Parramatta Eels at Brookvale Oval earlier this year. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to share our stories with the large crowd and collect donations on the night.
A large contingent of Burdekin management, staff, carers, young people and partner agencies attended the game as guests of the club. We thank them for this fabulous opportunity and look forward to growing the relationship in the future.
Community Partner room renovation challenge:
Additionally Burdekin were bold enough (sorry Justene our Executive Officer was bold enough) to ask the amazing Dylan Walker and Api Koroisau from the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles if they would undertake a community project with us on behalf of our young people. Both boys really relished the challenge and even showed some expertise in their interior design choices for our young people. They are both very interested in what is happening for young people on the peninsula and have visited our carers’ homes and other properties and have spent time with our staff building on their own personal resources so that they can connect with young people and share some of their own life journey in a meaningful way.
It has been a pleasure having them both at Burdekin and we thank them for giving their time to our organisation, below you will see a clip from Channel 9 News featuring Justene, Dylan and Api.
