A simple blog for Gambian access re Kit Aid football kit donation
Sadly many people in Janjanbureh are unable to load pages with several photos due to internet connection so this is for them.
Yesterday Janjanbureh Football Academy were in receipt of a wide range of football kit shipped in two consignments but both reaching Janjanbureh at the same time. The first was courtesy of Worcester resident Kevin Sanders who regularly collects large donations supporting N'Yofelleh village. He shared a collection from University of West Of England sports department. These were from many sports and brand new tops and shorts etc and very suitable for training along with general items of clothing. We wish to pass our thanks to Kevin for sharing this and also helping to reduce our shipping costs.
The second consignment came from KitAid collected in early October involving a long journey to London to collect, also enabling Janjanbureh Foundation to select a large quantity. We received three complete brand new kits of 15 tops, 15 shorts and 15 pair of socks.
We were particularly fortunate that on this occasion we were able to access some brand new Adidas football boots and new trainers
The sight of the boots actually reduced me to tears of gratitude. Boots have constantly been a request and difficult to fulfil.
Janjanbureh Foundation are shipping separately.
KitAid are a remarkable charity and we are very grateful that we were invited back after our last collection two years ago. Thanks must be passed to Janjanbureh Foundation for storing the collection until sorting and shipment.
