Helping Hoops is an independent charity running free basketball programs for children and young people from underprivileged backgrounds all over Melbourne.
On the eve of their major annual fundraising event [the "Charity Shootout"], Byron and Perri Lee are joined by Helping Hoops Head Coach Omar Coles.
In this episode, you'll gain an understanding of the incredible work being done by this program. We also challenge the mainstream media narrative around certain immigrant communities in Melbourne and focus on the positive aspects of what is happening.
