3 things – sports update, football shirts, and an auction item.

1. Sports – disappointment for Pakati Secondary school in the District football competitions. Two games played, against Kambarami and Chenhuta, were both 2-0 losses. These two teams actually made it to the tournament final. Full report and pictures still to follow soon.

2. Football shirts. I have been given a number of football shirts, and have just taken them to Simon, my friend who is a collecter and trader. He has already started on getting interest from people he knows, and informs me that a number of them could raise a decent amount, a couple in the range of £50-60 each. All funds raised will go to http://gofundme.com/friends-of-pakati

One of the shirts donated recently

3. Signed picture of Scunthorpe United from several years ago, apparently is going to be auctioned in the near future to raise funds for http://friendsofpakati.com and I believe there may be other items available too.

Up for sale soon….
