Shirts/sports kits For Pakati schools

Back in summer 2015 there was a brief discussion between Daniel and I about getting season tickets for Scunthorpe United. We did. The 2015/16 season kicked off in August and we went to at least 25 games home and away.

Sat just behind us were some fans we spoke to most games, yet strangely never learned their names. In the picture below, they can be clearly seen behind Daniel. All 5 of them are from the same family. They still sit in the same seats, but we have moved a couple of blocks away from them.

They recently heard and read about this project, and wanted to give something. They didn’t have computers to donate, but are involved in local boys & teens amateur football teams. They have some kits from a previous season from two of the teams which they gave to me earlier this year. Shirts, shorts, socks one keepers top and some bibs – see pictures below. They are mostly medium sizes.

Then there are the 16 shirts donated by Scunthorpe United too, mostly smaller sizes suitable for the Primary school I think.

All of these and maybe more will be heading to Pakati in a few months…

To those who gave these donations, THANK YOU!!

If you, or any team you support, would like to donate shirts, kit, boots and/or memorabilia either to send or for sale, please see below for full contact details
