Support the GIANTS Back to School Appeal

The GIANTS and their partners are proud to once again support The Smith Family and their programs in 2015.
 
Another school year has begun and it reminds us that a sound education for our children is critical for their development and long term future.
 
Attendance at school is on the decline especially amongst youth aged students, and the GIANTS along with members and corporate partners are supporting The Smith Family’s programs by providing memberships and merchandise as rewards for their attendance.
 
Membership and merchandise packs are being provided to The Smith Family via funding from corporate partners such a Yarmouth, who quickly jumped on board to support this initiative.
 
All contributions are appreciated, big or small to assist with rewarding these students with a day out with their families that may not otherwise be possible.
 
Contributions will be acknowledged on the big screen match days, GIANTS website, within membership packs and at media opportunities with the schools and students.

Corporate organisations can donate by contacting Tina McKeown at tina.mckeown@gwsgiants.com.au, and individuals by calling the membership department on 1800 442 687 or CLICK HERE and contribute via your online account.
 
A little bit about Yarmouth and Andrew McNeil, Founder and Chairman

Andrew McNeil is the founder and Chairman of the Yarmouth group of companies. Yarmouth is a financial services business specialising in real estate investment management and was founded in Sydney in 2008. Yarmouth has been a corporate partner of the GIANTS since 2010.

Yarmouth have also been the long term player partner of Jeremy Cameron.

Andrew came to the GWS GIANTS in 2010 and asked about the plans of the AFL for Football in Greater Western Sydney and told of the club of his plans to support the club. During these initial discussion, Andrew said that he wanted to support a player who was from a location closest to his original hometown in Western Victoria.

When Andrew discovered Jeremy was also from Western Victoria, Andrew wanted to support Jeremy as Andrew knew how hard it was for someone from the country to move to the city to follow their sporting dreams. Since that time Andrew has spent time with Jeremy and knows what a credit Jeremy is to his family and the club.

Andrew also has an extensive background as an elite national team athlete and coach in the sport of rowing both here in Australia and overseas. Andrew is also a long-term supporter of the Smith family personally and via the Yarmouth Foundation.

Andrew is a great example of how AFL Footy and Corporations combine to support, grow and mentor the youthful playing talent and help encourage young footballers into sporting and community leaders.
