Update time…follow on from ‘What we need’

Next week I am going to pick up the donation of 4 computers and 1 Laptop from a company called The Stephenson Group based in Horsforth near Leeds. I am hoping to help them with any publicity they might wish to arrange.

Current total showing on the fundraising page is £880 with a number of other promises of further donations, largely from the selling of collectors items – football shirts in particular.

I have messaged a number of other football clubs, and had a positive response from one so far. Match worn shirts seem to have the highest value, especially if they are signed by the player(s) concerned.

I have a contact for shipping the computers, so am in contact with him about getting them transported to Zimbabwe & then to the schools.

We still need more donations in cash, in kind and/or online. If you can help…
