Wests Tigers hosted their 2018 Macarthur Community Dinner last week to celebrate some of the key projects they are involved in.
They have significantly increased their community engagement, following the development of the club’s first community strategy. This strategy centres on six key pillars that focus on Education, Indigenous, Multiculturalism, Women, Healthy Living and Grass Roots.
As part of this strategy, MWLP Linking Youth commenced working with Wests Tigers last year to run a Young Women’s Leadership Program at Leumeah High School.
Shaun Spence, Fan Engagement and Community Manager for Wests Tigers, spoke about the success of the program and together Wests Tigers and MWLP aim to run more successful leadership programs in schools this year.
Sue Scobie, MWLP’s Marketing & Communication Manager said “Many of the players attended and mixed with guests. It was refreshing to see their reaction to the inspiring work their Club is doing in the Macarthur region. I got to meet Luke Brooks, welcome back Benji Marshall and welcome Josh Reynolds to the Club. Let’s hope they have their best season yet.”
