Youngsters in Guinea, Africa, have recently received new football kit thanks to Clwb Pel-droed Penrhosgarnedd Junior Football Club in Bangor who donated their unwanted football kit and boots.

The children in Guinea are crazy about football but are amongst the poorest in Africa and they can‘t afford to buy the kit they need.

Andrew Williams of Clwb Pel-droed Penrhosgarnedd said: “A few weeks ago Penrhosgarnedd FC collected unused football kit to be donated to football mad children in the West African country of Guinea.

“Keith Lawson from Menai Bridge is working on a construction project there and his fiancé Sharon is working to improve the health and wellbeing of the community. They arranged for the transport and distribution of the collection.

“The kit has now reached it’s destination at the town of Kamsar and has now been distributed to some of the poorest children. A further collection will be arranged in the near future.”


If you can help by donating any unwanted football shirts, shorts, socks, boots, trainers, shin pads, goalie gloves and even footballs, before the next shipment please contact Andrew Williams via or phone 07771 908626
