THE response to Westend Junior Football Club’s appeal for boots and kit to send to the village of Hluvukani in South Africa has been overwhelming.

There is still time for further donations to be made if anyone would like to do so.

Smiling Ubisi, one of the founders of the Kunavelela Project commented: “It’s really good news that Westend FC will be supporting us again this year especially as we have more and more boys joining the team”.

The club are now ready to send a pallet load of boots and various items to South Africa but would welcome financial assistance and advice to ensure that the pallet gets to Hluvukani safely.
