Namutumba Kids Football
Over recent months we have carried out a collection of used footballs, boots, kit and other equipment which we packaged up and sent over to Namutumba Kids Football Academy in Uganda. To remind everyone, the Namutumba Kids Academy is a community based organisation which is related to an orphanage in the slums of Eastern Uganda. I am pleased to confirm that the equipment has now reached Uganda and the kit is in the process of being distributed around the children and youth of the academy teams.
On behalf of Bramley Sunnyside JFC we offer our sincere thanks for the support of the fantastic football clubs which contributed. We received amazing donations from Brampton United, Eckington BFC, Hoyland Town Juniors, Wickersley All-Stars, Wickersley Youth and Wisewood JFC as well as donations from adult team Maltby Haynook. We also received a large donation of kit and footballs from the Sheffield and District Junior League, footballs from JD Sports and a huge donation of boots and kit from the brilliant charity Boots2Africa. There have also been independent donations from individuals not associated with football clubs. Finally, my thanks go to the company which shipped the equipment at their cost albeit they chose to remain anonymous!
I can confirm that we shipped over 620 pairs of football boots, 10 large boxes of full playing kit, 10 large boxes of sportswear, 5 boxes of footballs and a box full of shin pads and goalie gloves. We also sent over items such as nets and training equipment.
The big smiles on the photograph belong to some of the boys at the Academy and they send their thanks for your help.
