Monday afternoon is football training for boys and girls at The William Stewart Foundation. Levison managed to be there today to take some photos of the teams looking very proud and smart in their new strips and boots. We are very grateful for everyone who supports us to support the children at The Foundation. Until recently, they had nothing. As well as enjoying the time with their friends, the football games and training, they now look the part too. Team sports are so important for morale boosting, self-esteem, fitness and mental health. These vulnerable children can forget about all their problems and enjoy being children for a while. They know that people who they’ve never met care about them enough to donate gifts of preloved kit and boots and other sports equipment.
So thank you today to Fakenham Town Football Club for the football strips, thank you to Bromley & Beckenham Hockey Club for the white strips the girls are wearing for their football training and thank you to Letchworth Garden City Eagles for the football boots. Goal keeper gloves were kindly donated by Dan Cook and Joe Mant.
Julian Chenery from Wear a Sports Shirt Day collected all of the above and sent it to Dundee to go on the container to Malawi. Thank you Julian for all your hard work and donations. Also to Julian’s boss Nikki Nagra for sponsoring the cost of the box of football boots. Everyone’s contributions are very much appreciated and you can see how happy the children are. Thanks for reading, Sarah x
