Hundreds of touch and netballs handed out to Whangārei schools

Whangārei students have hundreds of new touch and netballs at their fingertips thanks to Rebel Sports and the Tania Dalton Foundation.

Manaia View School pupils were the first to get their hands on 60 new balls gifted to the school yesterday morning. The team kept bouncing along and handed out more balls, 300 in total, at Morningside, Kamo Intermediate, Whangārei Intermediate and Te Kura o Otangarei. The Whangārei Netball Association were also lucky recipients. The balls were part of the Tania Dalton Foundation Pass it Forward programme recently launched alongside Rebel Sports. For every Pass it Forward ball bought in a Rebel Sports store, the foundation donated an identical ball to a school or club to help remove barriers to participation in sport and support young Kiwis.The Whangārei schools were the first to benefit from the programme.
