FOOTBALL: A CAMPAIGN has been launched in Rugby to urge people to send any unwanted football shirts to children in Africa.
Rugby MP Mark Pawsey is backing the campaign which has been running on and off for over six years.
Any unwanted kit to be sent to Africa can be dropped off in a donations box at the entrance of the Rugby Town Junior Football Club’s grounds on Kilsby Lane.
Mike Illand, of Rugby Town JFC said: “Rugby Town Juniors are so fortunate to have probably the finest facilities in the UK, and want to share a little part of their good fortune by sending outgrown kits to those who need them.
“Club kits are of course great, but replica shirts from any club -whether it’s Arsenal or Poland’s Zaglebie Lubin – would really be appreciated.”
