The Sydney Roosters weren't only successful on the field last night after the Easts Group walked away a winner from The 2014 Clubs & Community Awards, in the education category for the Easts Group Sydney Roosters Schools Program.
Including the Roosters Against Racism, Anti Bullying and how to create a successful team environment Programmes, the Group was one of thirteen nominations in the category state wide recognising the work that Clubs do in the community.
These programmes are presented to school children, predominately in the eastern suburbs area.
"This work really does make a difference to the young lives that it is delivered too," Easts Group CEO Scott Bennetts said.
"Fittingly, we were hosting 83 local teachers last night at the Roosters game highlighting Roosters Against Racism."
"Congratulations to the lead on the initiative, Helen Saunders, and also to be congratulated are our Roosters players who with the above programmes and other initiatives deliver over 1600 hours in the community each year."
