The Crusaders got their Big Give campaign off to a great start when helping to paint the Ohoka Rugby Clubrooms today.
An enthusiastic team of players and management quickly got into their work in beautiful North Canterbury at the early hour of 7.15am and the first coat was finished about an hour later.
Cups of tea and lovely home-made cakes and pastries made by Ohoka club members were quickly dispatched by the team afterwards and a signing and photographic session followed with young fans.
The Crusaders Big Give is something the team is doing to give back to the community.
There will be two more Big Gives for worthy causes this year: Wednesday, February 4, and Tuesday, February 10.
Crusaders coach Todd Blackadder said: “We are more than happy to do these things for our community. It’s our privilege to represent the Crusaders franchise and we recognise the lengths many fans go to to support us.”
