A few days ago I had the pleasure of finding out more about this very Academy, which offers underprivileged children in the area a place to play football at U-12 and U-14 level and follow their beloved Newcastle United.
It’s an inspirational project and brilliant story I had the privilege of sharing on NUFCBlog.co.uk, but they need our support – not only to gain the recognition they deserve here in England, but to improve their facilities due to a lack of funding.
Sadly, many of the 50 children involved struggle to get three meals per day and continue to live in poverty, so the resources available to the Academy are incredibly limited.
Any money donated would contribute towards food, clothes, footballs (they only have 3 at present!), goal posts, first aid kits and a Newcastle United shirt for each player - with the children all dreaming of owning their very own black and white jersey one day!
No matter how big or small, any contribution would mean the world to the Academy and all its members, who need our support now more than ever after tragically losing two officials to COVID-19 recently.
Please give what you can to help our friends in West Africa pursue their Newcastle United dream.
Thank you! ⚫️⚪️⚫️
