Melbourne Visit Alice Springs

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

Last month, Melbourne travelled to Alice Springs to conduct various community activities including the launch of the ‘Coles Demons Healthy Eating Lunch Box’ program, the Long Walk and the launch of ‘Anngang Antjakarta’, the Trachoma Sore Eyes story.  

Young Melbourne players Max King and Mitch Clisby were outstanding – and relished the opportunity to mix with the community – visiting local schools, the Alice Library and Ti Tree, one of the remote communities in the Northern Territory.  

While in Alice Springs, the club was able to show its continual support regarding the elimination of trachoma. 

Singer songwriter Shellie Morris, Melbourne players and a local author joined forces in Ti Tree to launch Anngang Anitjakarta by Ti Tree author and illustrator Hazel Presley. 

Using hand drawn images and easy to learn messages, the book aims to help children understand how to avoid contracting the debilitating disease that can cause blindness.
