Walsham football players do their bit for charity

Walsham-le-Willows Football Club did their bit for charity, making many new friends and links in the process, during a recent trip to Uganda.

The Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division outfit donated a variety of football-related merchandise and played a friendly match against a local team in Kampala, in the south of the country.

The club made donations of one adult kit, two children’s kits and a mixture of other equipment.

Among the other items were football boots and Premier League and European team shirts, as part of a project which they have been working on for some time.

Walsham’s chairman Neil Hayden remarked: “It was great to be able to make use of some old kits which had been around the club for a long time and provide so much enjoyment for the people who received them.

“Hopefully we will have the opportunity to do the same again in the future.”

Jon Bovington, one of the youth coaches behind the trip, also organised a football match between the Suffolk club and a local side, which followed the presentation of donations.
