Essendon Football Club is thrilled to announce a kick start to the Good Friday Appeal donation with Essendon’s longest-serving commercial partner Yakult Australia donating $10,000, to be matched dollar for dollar by EFC.

The donation was announced pre game at the Kick for the Kids Match by Essendon CEO Xavier Campbell and Yakult Australia Managing Director Kenji Ono.

“This donation is an incredible gesture from Yakult on what is an important day,” Campbell said.

“Yakult has been a tremendous supporter of the club for over 15 years and we thank them for their generous contribution today.”

Yakult Australia have long been supporters of Essendon’s community programs and charitable initiatives, and this donation only further highlights this commitment.
