At 2.45pm today, just before kick off for the game between Scunthorpe United and Carlisle United, I was presented with some more football shirts for Pakati, along with notification that the club will be giving a donation to this coming week.

The presentaion was done by Mr Jim Rodwell, the club’s CEO, in the absence of Chairman Peter Swann. The donation (amount to be confirmed) will go towards the cost of more items of IT equipment, and their transport to the schools. We have some items still to buy for this first shipment, notably routers & printers.

Teams are out prior to kick-off today

Further updates on this and other issues in the next few days.
