A truly amazing day…part 2 – the ceremony

The handover ceremony took place in the presence of the local dignatories as mentioned on the previous post.

In order to follow protocol a symbolic sample of the goods were passed by me to the MP, then to the CEO of the Rural District Council, to the local councillor before being handed to the two school representatives.

The 2 principal donors, Stephenson Group for computers and Scunthorpe United FC for the football kits and a substantial cssh donation plus all induvidual donors were all greatly thanked and appreciated.

Thank you to those Iron fans who donated football kits

It was great to get the support of the local MP, CEO of Murewa RDC, the local councillor and so many other local organisations as well as the community around Pakati

It was also great to have a local organisation such as VaTonatsa supporting our event. Please look out for them on social media to find out more.

We had a meal of local foods afterwards much to my delight!

The Iron has a new supporter!

Many thanks to EVERYONE who made the day such a great succes!!
