|No this is not them....I do have some pics but its a long story about pic files and my phone crashing....don't ask...|
Thirty-five balls and assorted boots of varied sizes were tipped our way by Caloundra City soccer club.
Club Prez Craig Russell told me as we stood in an empty football field as dusk and a storm approached that this is the biggest junior club on the Sunshine Coast, with some 45 teams. The team Craig coaches just fell short of the Grand Final, but finished a credible third in the comp.
So, thanks to Craig and the Caloundra City family for their generous donation.
Only 965 balls to go to reach our target....
Fortunately, we have received pledges from Kevin Milstein at the Reagan Milstein Foundation, The Sunshine Coast Churches Soccer Association and from Mark Acaster (who has helped us before) at Red Lion Football Tours, so we're gradually on the way to our target.
We'll rein them all in as we get closer to the delivery date.
We have an open call for balls and kit - used and new - and so to become a member of the Kick Project for Gaza or elsewhere, just make contact and we'll fill you in.
Unfortunately, we have had to postpone our Gaza project due to the impending winter and the uncertainty over hostilities. All donations will go into storage until we can get there, hopefully in the northern spring.
We will, of course, keep our supporters posted on all developments.
