I would like to express my thanks to our hosts in Ackworth during last weeks walk between Bradford and Scunthorpe – my brother-in-law Dave, his wife Sharon and their daughter Liz (aka Elizabeth or Lilley). A typically warm African welcome which was very much appreciated by us all.
I also have to say how much we enjoyed our stay at the Fair Green Hotel in Thorne, our accommodation for our second night. The staff were very helpful and put themselves out on the Saturday morning by coming in early to cook breakfast for us. The rooms were clean, pleasant and comfortable.
Following contact with local Iron fans and avid shirt collectors, 4 out of the 9 donated are already sold for a total of £150, and the remaining 5 are also likely to sell soon & could reach another £100+.
I have now taken another donation of more shirts, some of which are collectable, many will be shipped to Pakati along with other shirts, including those given to me by Rob Noble (Head of Marketing, Ticketing and Retail/Supportes Liaison Officer).
