Author’s update….shirts, walking and publicity…. please share as widely as you can!

Glanford Park (Home of Scunthorpe United) 30th March 2019
Presentation to the Author by Rob Noble, Head of Marketing

I have been given some football shirts kindly donated by my hometown club, Scunthorpe United to Pakati. I have also had a further gift of football shirts by some fellow supporters of the Iron (nickname of SUFC), who are involved with an amatuer side in the Scunthorpe area. I will get them all to Pakati soon as I hear of someone I know going to Zimbabwe in the near future.

As I get ever closer to my sponsored walk – 25th to 27th April – I am training each day walking around my local area in Bradford where I now live. Anyone wishing to sponsor me, please donate through the link below to my fundraising page:

The Iron matchday programme 30th March 2019 – great to get a feature in here!

Publicity is ongoing including in the programme for last saturdays football match in Scunthorpe, plus another interview on BBC Radio Humberside’s Sports Talk programme, with Mike White & Matt Dean, on Tuesday of this week.

Any help anyone can give please let me know…see important links below:
