Donated Rovers kit reaches Africa

“For these children it’s a dream come true to wear a football shirt or kit for the first time in their lives”

13 December 2019

Children in remote villages of Gambia in West Africa received kit donated by Rovers Ladies this week.

Rovers Ladies and Regional Talent Club shirts and tracksuits were given out in the village of Kerr Auldi, north of the River Gambia.

It’s a four-hour drive away from the popular tourist destination of Bakau.

Lifelong Rovers fan Salim Jogee visits the area twice a year with family and friends to organise hands-on charity work and projects.

And for the second year running he handed out Rovers shirts and trainingwear to the children.

“Gambia is one of the poorest countries in the world, people live in extreme poverty,” Jogee said.

“The kits donated by Blackburn Rovers Ladies reach far away remote villages where no charity usually reaches.

“For these children it’s a dream come true to wear a football shirt or kit for the first time in their lives.

“They truly appreciate and send sincere heartfelt thanks to Blackburn Rovers Ladies FC.”
