NAIDOC Week a big success

Wests Tigers community team attended multiple events over the course of NAIDOC Week, acknowledging the history, culture, and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

First up was Campbelltown City’s Community Connections Day, which included a range of activities, including educational workshops and cultural performances by Wiritjiribin Dance Group, Waranwarin Early Learning Centre, and John Warby Primary School.

Club legend Pat Richards and rising NRLW star Losana Lutu then represented the club on Tuesday for the Camden Council flag raising at Oran Park. 

Wests Tigers NRLW players Kezie Apps, Sarah Togatuki and Botille Vette-Welsh were then on hand at Tharawal Aboriginal Land Council Family Fun Day on Friday.

Vette-Welsh, who returned from an 18-month injury layoff in the team’s NRLW trial at the weekend, says it was a pleasure being so heavily involved in NAIDOC Week.

“I think it’s a really important time of the year and we enjoyed being a part of the celebrations,” said Vette Welsh.

We were made to feel so welcome at the events we attended and there was such a great vibe.
