The Wild Beasts basketball team is another one of Chris McGeachan’s (Chris is the Victoria Police youth liaison officer for the Collingwood Fitzroy area) great achievements for young people in our area. The Wild Beasts players are drawn from the teenagers of the Somali Community in the Collingwood and Fitzroy High Rise Apartments. They have an annual national competition. This year the Club sponsored their uniforms.
On Tuesday we received a email from Steve Earl, Rotary Club of Fitzroy President advising that the Wild Beasts had fallen short of their funding for the competition by $2,000.00. Fitzroy were able to find $1,000.00 so we donated the other $1,000.00. Problem solved.
