Wests Tigers Honors Legacy with Rosemary Sprigging and Commemorative Jerseys

Posted on | By sydney.admin

Alex Twal and Tim Sheens from the Wests Tigers gathered at the Zurich Centre on 19 April to sprig rosemary for Legacy.

The rosemary, generously donated by Harris Farm, is given out on the streets of the CBD on ANZAC Day. It is a gift to the public; however, many choose to donate to Legacy for their sprig.

Rosemary is traditionally worn on ANZAC Day as a symbol of remembrance and grew on the Gallipoli Peninsula, where Australian and New Zealand troops fought during World War I.

In addition to sprigging rosemary, Tigers reprsentatives had the opportunity to meet with Dyontae Barnes, a beneficiary of Sydney Legacy, and hear her story.

The club is also going the extra mile to support Legacy during their ANZAC Round match against the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles at Campbelltown Sports Stadium on Sunday 23 April.

The team will be wearing special commemorative jerseys for the occasion, and all jerseys worn by the players during the match will be auctioned off to raise funds for Legacy.

This presents a unique opportunity for fans to not only own a piece of memorabilia from the match but also make a meaningful contribution to Legacy’s cause.

Wests Tigers Community Manager Keehan Diamond said the club is delighted to support its matchday charity partner, Legacy.

“Legacy does so much wonderful work in the community, not just around ANZAC Day, but for 12 months of the year,” said Keehan.

“This is a great opportunity for our members and fans to show their appreciation and support for Legacy,” he added.

This partnership between the Wests Tigers NRL team and Sydney Legacy serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of commemorating and honouring the sacrifices made by the military community.

Sydney Legacy Acting Secretary Legatee Ian Thompson said Sydney Legacy is delighted to partner with Wests Tigers for the third year.

“The ANZAC Round jersey auction is a wonderful initiative, and we thank Wests Tigers members and fans in advance for their generosity,” Legatee Thompson said.

As ANZAC Day approaches, it is a timely reminder for all Australians to reflect on the bravery, courage, and sacrifices of those who have served and continue to serve in the military. It is also a time to remember their families and the sacrifices they too have made.
