Exciting news! Latest event to fundraise for Pakati schools to be held over the Easter weekend.
The publicity for this is already in the pipeline, with BBC Radio Humberside looking to do an interview, Iron Bru are agreeing to a brief slot on one of their upcoming podcasts, and Scunthorpe United media team getting involved – possible articles on the club website and at least one Iron matchday programme. Further support for ‘Get TIED UP for Pakati’ is promised from SUOSC – Scunthorpe United Official Supporters Club – and once more from Iron Trust.
All of this came about from the pictures I posted after the Ceremony at Pakati in September last year, when we officially handed over ther donated goods with the support of the local dignatories. A friend of mine from twitter and fellow Iron follower, David Scott, saw me in a tie and thought of the idea of getting fans to wear a tie at an away game, then offered to pay friendsofpakati.com £1 per fan who obliged. SUOSC’s Neal Campbell has offered to promote it and ask fans themselves to donate £1 each too.
Other fundraising activities are ongoing – the Author losing weight among them – and others are being planned. Expect more announcements in the coming weeks from friendsofpakati.com not just from the Author….
