Children and parents of Clwb Pel-droed Penrhosgarnedd Junior Football Club in Bangor are sharing their passion for football with underprivileged children, by collecting and donating unwanted football kit and boots and sending it to children in Guinea, Africa.

The children in Guinea are crazy about football but are amongst the poorest in Africa, and they would greatly welcome any unwanted football items.


The club are appealing for any unwanted football shirts, shorts, socks, boots, trainers, shin pads, goalie gloves and even footballs, before the first shipment will be made after next weekend.

Andrew Williams of Clwb Pel-droed Penrhosgarnedd said: “We need to collect as much as we can this week.

“There will be a collection of unwanted kit for Guinea tonight (Tuesday 1st May) between 6pm-7pm at the gate of Tryfan School playing field or tomorrow night (Wednesday 2nd May) at the club’s pitch at Treborth at the same time.”

The kit will then be packaged and delivered to some of the world’s poorest children by Keith and Sharon from Menai Bridge who work in Guinea.
