RAF Shawbury Providing Kit Across The World
It’s not just on Oteley Road or across Shropshire where you will see people wearing their Shrewsbury Town shirts with pride.
Through the Club’s close relationship with RAF Shawbury, Town assisted Wing Commander Neil Hope is providing kit for Sporting Chance International who exist to improve the lives, especially young and needy people, through sport.
Along with fellow club tops belonging to clubs such as Manchester United, Aston Villa and Wolverhampton Wanderers, Shrewsbury shirts made their way to the Northgate School in Nairobi, just in time for them to wear for their weekend games.
Fred Osore of Sporting Chance commented: “Some of the kits these schools were using were old and worn out and so they were so happy to receive a new set of kit as shown by the smiles all over their faces.
“On behalf of Sporting Chance International I wish to say a big thank you to you Mr. Neil Hope and your colleagues at Royal Air force. Through your efforts, many kids and schools in our country are being blessed and their kitting is being improved one school at a time.”
Shrewsbury Town in the Community manager Jamie Edwards is delighted to see the Shrewsbury Town colours going out to people who need them.
He said: “The Taking Football to Africa and Beyond Charitable Appeal is something that, as a club and a community, we have been keen to support for many years.
“The smile seen on the children’s faces at the Northgate School in Nairobi is mirrored by everyone here at the football club and we are proud to be reminded of the impact Shrewsbury Town can have on people.”
