Happy customers of Friends of Pakati Merchandise!

Eager buyers have started receiving their chosen items from our current Merchandise – see https://friendsofpakati.com/2021/01/09/friends-of-pakati-merchandise-for-sale/ – and the first funds have come in to increase our bank balance.

Max Bell, a fellow supporter of the Iron (Scunthorpe United FC), was the first to buy. He kindly posted the above pic on social media (Monday 18th Jan) for me:

“I’m delighted that my @friendsofpakati badge and coaster have arrived in the post from @guiuan03. Grab some great merchandise of your own and help a great cause along the way! #FriendsOfPakati https://friendsofpakati.com/merchandise/

Our second sale (see above) has successfully been received by our very own Debbie Chadbon:

“Hi Chris. We’re fine thanks. The goods arrived yesterday – they’re great!”
