Old strips will be snet out to Africa for children.


GIFFNOCK Soccer Centre will use this weekend’s Securigroup International tournament to collect old strips to send to under-privileged kids in Africa.

The club has built a long-standing relationship with the Johari Foundation in Kibera, Kenya — the largest township in Eastern Africa.

Johari is involved in a number of very successful and beneficial children’s charitable programmes in Kenya.

There will be a stall at this weekend’s tournament at Loch Inch and Cartha where old strips can be deposited.

Meanwhile, GSC is also promoting a 5k sponsored walk which is taking place on June 10 at Pollok Park.

The walk is to support seven-year-old girl Ayesha Siddiqui who has leukaemia and is searching for a bone marrow match and transplant.

Details for the Walk and the Appeal can be viewed at www.facebook.com/ayeshasappeal or Email ayeshasappeal@hotmail.co.uk for further information.
