At their first ever Stirling Sports Premiership season launch, Hamilton Wanderers announced their chosen charity for the SSP season, that being Child Matters.
Child Matters is an organisation that raises the awareness and promotes discussion of the often silent subject of child abuse in NZ.
General Manager of Hamilton Wanderers, Gurdeep Rana, and first team manager, David Douglas both said “family is one of the values that Hamilton Wanderers hold most dearly as a club so when we started looking for a charity to work with through our Premiership campaign, Child Matters ticked all the boxes and were a natural fit for our club and SSP team”
It is even better that their Head Office is based in Hamilton even though their invaluable work stretches throughout New Zealand.
Our Stirling Sports Premiership Team and the club as a whole will work over the summer to promote Child Matters and the great work they do in our local community and in communities throughout New Zealand.
It’s the first time we have done this as a club and we couldn’t be happier with who we have chosen.”
Jane Searle, General Manager at Child Matters, echoed these sentiments and said at the clubs season launch “obviously it is a very exciting time for Hamilton Wanderers as they embark on their debut national league season and for them to think of aligning with a charity and how they could use their profile to raise awareness of that charity says a lot about the club and the values they hold.
To be chosen as their first charity is incredibly exciting for Child Matters and we look forward to promoting our relationship with Hamilton Wanderers whenever we can and look forward to supporting the guys through their season in the Stirling Sports Premiership”.
