Greg Crick - Announced as an Ambassador for Whitelion Tasmania
Whitelion Tasmania has pulled off a major coup, by getting the support of Tasmanian motor racing legend Greg Crick, who has agreed to become an Ambassador.
Crick has already played a major role this year in helping to change young lives, by giving three Whitelion participants in Adelaide a never to forget experience during the Clipsal 500.
“They spent the entire day with me and had a ball, they met V8 Supercar legend Russell Ingall, got to change tyres, toured pit lane, posed for photographs, things like that and seeing the smiles on their faces, it was a great feeling” Crick said.
He added “they were great kids and our youth here need help too, they need to be shown that there are people out there that care and who want to see them achieve all they can be, that’s why I got involved with Whitelion”.
Under his Ambassador role, Crick will support Whitelion in a number of ways, his Dodge Viper GT3 is proudly displaying the Whitelion logo throughout the entire Australian GT Championship series, taking the Whitelion brand to never seen before levels of exposure Australia wide.
As an Ambassador, Crick will spend some quality time with Whitelion participants on and off the race track as well as support some of the charity’s programs.
Devonport Recreational Centre sponsors North West Mentoring Program
The Devonport Recreational Centre are giving Whitelion volunteer mentors and clients the opportunity to access their fantastic facilities and activities free of charge in addition to the use of a room in the centre where mentors and their young person can catch up and spend time together.
This support provides mentors and young people a relaxed non-office environment to play cards, eightball, have a game of table tennis, go to the gym or access kitchen facilities to learn to put together a sandwich/or make lunch. Without this type of facility Whitelion volunteers can struggle to find free activities and venues to spend time with their young people.
