Strengthening relationships in the Illawarra community

Forging the future for our Indigenous youth -

Clontarf and the Illawarra Hawks

The Illawarra Hawks and Pepper Money continue to strengthen relationships in the Illawarra community and have recently partnered with the Clontarf Foundation – a program aiming to improve the outlook of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men in the local communities.

The foundation focuses on improving the education, discipline, life skills, self-esteem and employment prospects of these young men, whilst The Illawarra Hawks aim is to help facilitate that by introducing the kids to basketball. The youngsters taking part in the program – all aged between 12 and 18 – were put through their paces by the Illawarra Hawks great and current community engagement officer Tim Coenraad.

Nick’s day out

As the Principal Sponsor of the Illawarra Hawks, one of the things we're proudest about is being able to help the local Illawarra community interact with the club that they love.

The Illawarra Hawks recently invited Nick, a budding photographer and huge Hawks fan, down to training and to watch the Hawks play against the Sydney Kings. He enjoyed the opportunity of a lifetime – a chance to meet the Illawarra Hawks and photograph the team (including his favourite player Tyler Harvey) in action.

Nick was accompanied by his photography teacher Chris who said he had the time of his life.
