Soccer children in need of basics

2016-07-20 06:00

I HAVE always realised that sport saved me from a lot of social ills, and made me a family man and a respected community member.

I still believe that sport can play an important role in saving the young generation from social ills.

Sport is also a simple, cheap and powerful tool to unite communities, cultures, religions and races.

I was therefore touched when I watched youngsters from around Panorama (Ward 34) training to play football without goalposts at the Panorama School grounds recently.

Apparently the old goalposts rotted and fell apart.

This means these youngsters are training without the basic requirements.

With this in mind, I ask the good people out there to please donate a set of goalposts, soccer kit and a few balls.

I can be contacted at jerryb.bar nes228@gmail.com or 083 521 9553, and at 8 Redwood Crescent, Panorama Gardens, Pietermaritzburg.
