In Summer of 2018, an ambitious parent had the idea to ask school and sports teams to donate old football kits to benefit those less fortunate than ourselves. By the end of the year, we had amassed boxes and boxes of kits, boots, jackets and balls which were going to make their way to Nigeria. At this point, DOORCO offered to assist with packing and transport and they left our premises early December to arrive just in time for Christmas. The equipment was destined for Sanctuary Strikers FC, a youth football team based in Ibadan, that aims to nurture, develop and promote talent.
DOORCO was delighted to support this initiative which is being driven by a local parent (@mischahaddow) with support from Terra Nova School (@terranovaschool) and our local youth football team, Wilmslow Sports FC (@wilmslowsportsfc). The ultimate aim is for the children from school or Wilmslow Sport to get together with SSFC for a friendly sometime in the future. Watch this space!
