The Coach’s Award recognises a quiet achiever who wore their team’s colours with pride and embraced the spirit of Footy Colours Day in 2017.
Alpha Barbers, a salon nestled on Hardware Lane in Melbourne hosted a Footy Colours Day event for the first time this year. They raised money by taking donations from clients and giving their tip money that they earned on Friday 22 September, one of their busiest days. They also shared a photo from their event on Instagram thanking their customers for donating.
For their generosity in giving out of their own pockets to help young learners continue with their education, Alpha Barbers are worthy recipients of this year’s Coach’s Award.
