The U12 Sooke Strikers

Sooke Strikers donate to the food bank

Give a bit, get some back. U12 Sooke Strikers donate to the foodbank, and apply for BMO's team of the week for funds towards a new field.

The U12 Sooke Strikers, a local soccer team, recently got in on the Sooke Food Bank action. They did a bottle drive and, according to coach Laura Lockhart, raised $530 for the food bank. The U12 Sooke Strikers and the U8’s are attempting to win the BMO Team of the Week (http://bmosoccer.com/en/team?t=1449 and http://bmosoccer.com/en/team?t=1420 respectively), so that they can raise funds towards a new (and less waterlogged) soccer field. To stay tuned to their efforts, visit the U12’s Facebook’s page (search for “Sooke Soccer Club” on Facebook.com).
