The Charity Nest saw Steggles donate $1000 for every point the Sydney Roosters beat their opposition by in the 2010 season, with Sydney Roosters also contributing $250 a point.
Steggles Managing Director, John Camilleri appreciates the commitment displayed by the Roosters both on and off the field.
He adds that their shared belief in giving back to the community has helped them support a few excellent Australian children’s charities.
Roosters CEO Stephen Noyce said that they were happy to partner with Steggles to help children’s charities.
Sydney-based charity Lifestart has allocated the money towards a new early childhood intervention centre for children with disability or developmental delay while the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation will use the funds to purchase an Ear, Nose and Throat Imaging Stack.
Lifestart CEO Sue Becker expressed her gratitude for the generosity and support shown by Steggles and the Sydney Roosters throughout the year.
Other charities to receive an equal portion from the Charity Nest include Royal Children’s Hospital Brisbane (Working Wonders program), Camp Quality, the Children’s Cancer Research Institute, Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service and Autism SA.
