Latest update on fundraising…

Today I received another £100… the football shirts are proving a real hit! I am grateful to my fellow Iron fan, Simon, who is doing all the selling for me. Simon is a dedicated collector & trader in many different shirts.

As well as Simon, I have other Iron fans who have been searching through their wardrobes & drawers to find items they would be happy to donate for me to sell.

These were donated today, along with some more Scunthorpe United memorabilia

Above are some shirts donated by Brian, the man who also helped by doing some of the sponsored walk with us in April. Below are shirts donated by Glenys, another avid collector of match-worn shirts.

Also donated were these two below, by another Iron fan, Jill.

Already sold…

It looks like we will probably raise something like another £700-800, maybe more hopefully…

This is all going towards the project, towards providing IT equipment & getting it shipped to Pakati. I think we may look at extending the fundraising beyond this year, but I will discuss this all with Mr Mugove Chifaka, Head of the Secondary school.


My name is Chris Walker, and between January 1989 and September 1991 I worked, through VSO (Voluntary Service Overseas), at Pakati Secondary School in Murehwa South district in Zimbabwe. I was a Maths teacher for 2 years, the Acting Head for the last 8 months there. I have also taught in Botswana & the UK, had 4 years working for VSO, and have been a Civil Servant in Bradford since 2005.
