Kurt Tippett will be sharing some of his footy skills and offering up some tips on the environment at a special football clinic on Friday August 26.

As ResourceCo’s Sustainability Ambassador, he’s joining forces with AnglicareSA to give some children a few tips about the game and about the environment.

ResourceCo is South Australia’s leading resource recovery and recycling business.  AnglicareSA is the largest non-government welfare organisation in South Australia. Together they are providing a coaching clinic for some children who have been identified through Anglicare’s Aboriginal programs and children’s services.

Tippett is ResourceCo’s Sustainability Ambassador and that means one of his roles is to teach the messages of sustainability and looking after the environment.

“I’m a big believer in doing the right thing by the environment. We have a duty to show the next generation the right way to look after themselves through good health and fitness and the environment through recycling wherever possible and reducing our emissions,” said Tippett.

The clinic is being held on Friday August 26 at Henley & Grange Memorial Oval, Atkin Street Henley Beach from 4pm.
