Eb Appeti, the founder of The Appeti Tennis Centre needs your help to provide tennis equipment, balls and clothing for underprivileged children in Ghana, West Africa.
British born tennis professional, Eb Appeti, has joined forces with Tennis Foundation Ghana to fundraise for sports programs that are benefiting Ghanaian youth.
Eb, whose father was Ghanaian, is the founder of the Appeti Tennis Centre in Canterbury, UK. Appeti Tennis has been providing free and subsidized tennis instruction programs for children in Kent for many years.
Eb's father, Reg, bought Eb, his three brothers and sister up to believe that help should be given when and if needed. Reg was passionate about his home country and often sent out clothing, shoes, books and other items to help those that could not afford these things.
We use 200 Litre shipping barrels, each one costing around £110 to buy and ship.
So far we are proud to say that in 2020 we shipped 10 barrels to Ghana.
The barrels contained 2 ball machines, 35 rackets, 4500 tennis balls, 371 items of clothing and 38 pairs of tennis shoes. Many other items were kindly donated, such as notebooks, water bottles, racket bags and caps.
In the next 12 months, our aim is to ship 20 more barrels to Ghana and we would love your help to achieve this.
So, please donate any tennis equipment you may have and all items will be shipped directly to Ghana so that young children can play tennis. Alternatively, you can donate towards the buying and shipping costs of the barrels.
We are really grateful for your support.
