The ActewAGL Junior League will take on a different look this weekend, with the ActewAGL Round supporting Lids 4 Kids taking place.
Lids4Kids is a 100% volunteer project supporting Envision Hands who turn plastic bottle lids into hand and arm mobility aids for children and was founded in May 2019 by Tim Miller, a Dad with three boys under ten whose Holden Rally Team has been fundraising for charities that help sick and disabled kids since 2013.
Lids4Kids is collecting the plastic bottle tops from milk, water and soft-drink bottles that due to their size can’t be processed by plastic recycling machines, and the foundation is currently comprised of 6,000 official collectors, public collection points, town coordinators and regional coordinators across 30 Lids4Kids Groups covering every region in Australia. Lids4Kids hopes to rescue every eligible lid from landfill for the benefit of all kids
This weekend, bring your bottle lids and bread clips along to your ActewAGL Junior League ground to deposit with your club, and help make a difference in the life of a child.
Envision Hands based in Werribee Victoria currently use a 3D printer to make their mobility aids but have set up a GoFundMe page to help fundraise for a new machine to make their own plastic moulds to produce other products to assist kids.
