Thompsons f.c are a youth football club from Carlisle , Cumbria. Over the last three years members of our club have been going out to Gambia, where we have taken donations of football strips and training equipment and given them to local schools throughout the Gambia.
In January 2018 we will be returning to Gambia to continue our support for these local schools. This time we hope to raise funds for A.V.I Nursery School in Kololli. The school is for 4-7 year olds. This school is one of the poorest schools in Gambia. It recieves no goverment funding and is ran by volunteers.
We hope to raise £400 to enable us to buy a NEW school strip and training equipment. This will allow the school to take part in inter school sport (at present only western run schools take part in). The children of the school will design the badge for the strip , help us supply the strip !!
Help us help this school. Lets make it possible for this school to take part in our amazing game of football.
