Saints give back to donors

The playing group swapped footballs for aprons as they gave back to those who turn RSEA Park from a dream to a reality.

They’d just sprinted 12 kilometres in the heat, but their day was far from done.

Last week, the playing group swapped footballs for aprons as they gave back to those who turn RSEA Park from a dream to a reality.

Made possible by generous donations through the St Kilda Football Club Foundation, RSEA Park was abuzz as donors arrived for an event held to thank them for their contributions.

Waiting for them? A group of footballers dressed to the nines, waiting on them hand and foot.

“We’re pretty privileged to be able to come here and train here every day, so the players are very thankful,” said midfielder Jack Steele.

“It’s a great feeling to give back to the people that contributed to RSEA Park.

"It was good fun. I don’t think many of the boys had done that before.”
