Bunbury Toyota is helping football reach far and wide around the South West by donating a new Rav4 to the South West Regional Football Development Council to use for the next two years.

Development officer Aaron Agius will drive the car to schools and football clubs around the region, delivering the AFL for Life program for the second-straight year, with the aim of getting as many young children involved in the sport as possible.

WAFC South West regional development manager Glenn Omodei said the car would be a vital part of growing the sport in the region.

“With Aaron being on the road a fair bit, it is good to have a strong vehicle with plenty of storage space,” he said.

“All our sponsors have generally been local which is fantastic.”

Bunbury Toyota’s Ryan Krikke said he was delighted to help the program and contribute to football in the South West.

“Football is a good community sport and both (Bunbury Toyota employees) Mark Docking and Mark Blakely are heavily involved with football in the region,” he said.

“We feel it is important that football in our region stays strong and grows at the junior level.”

Mr Krikke said he was pleased to support anything that promoted health and exercise to children.
