Football shirts to Rwanda

Last week we sent the first consignment of 350+ shirts to Kigali for the young footballers of the club we played against when I was there last summer. The shirts have come from individuals and groups, and have also been collected by local school children. There are several England shirts as well as Man Utd, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal, all of whom are well known throughout Africa. Quite what the kis there will make of the many Coventry City shirts in the bundle I dont know, but will maybe the Sky Blue will help put The City on the map! I an very grateful to local firm TNT for arranging the freight to Rwanda and their driver, Dave, was a real star when he came to our offices to collect them.
