To get into Sports Day in Canada that will be held on September 29, the Nelson Star is encouraging local businesses to allow their staff to wear their favourite team jersey to work on Friday.

It’s recommended employees pay a toonie to participate and the money be donated to Nelson KidSport, an organization that offers grants towards children’s sports registration fees for families who would otherwise not be able to afford to participate in sport.

Earlier this week the team from the Star gathered outside their office wearing some of their favourite colours in preparation for next week.
