STFITC Team & Donations Arrive Safely In Livingstone

DSC_1796Swindon Town Football in the Community Trust are pleased to announce that after a long journey the team and all of the donations of kit and equipment have now reached Livingstone safely.

The donations departed England via DHL Express after they were being housed at Big Yellow Self Storage on Drakes Way, Swindon.

The 64 boxes full of generous donations have now been collected and sorted by the STFC FITC Community Team ready for a busy schedule.

100 Footballs have now been stitched ready for the upcoming arrival of a team of Swindon Town Football in the Community Coaches, 2 NPower Volunteers and 2 ‘NEET’s.

The footballs that have been hand stitched at the Alive and Kicking factory in Lusaka, have been carefully put together over the past few weeks before that they will be distributed out to various schools, teams and groups in the region of Livingstone during STFiTC visit in a weeks time.

Alive & Kicking makes top quality footballs (soccer balls), volleyballs, netballs, handballs, and rugby balls in Kenya and Zambia. They are the only formal manufacturer of sports balls in Africa, and they hope that this will change!

They are a charitable social enterprise – an organisation that uses business practices to pursue our charitable objectives. They create fair paid jobs in the manufacture of sports balls that are appropriate for typical African conditions, whilst ensuring that schools that cannot afford to buy the balls are able to access them, and we invest in educating young people about HIV/AIDS.

The Coaching Development Programme will start in earnest tomorrow morning with the FITC coaches delivering Coach Education, Girls Development, Disability Coaching, Referee Tutoring and coaching local teams during the afternoon and early evening.

We would like to thank our main sponsor Intel for providing us with a top of the range ultrabook, which enables us to send home a daily update from Zambia.
