Gunn looking for football gear for his Zambia appeal

Jim Gunn is determined to make a difference to the people of Zambia and is looking for the help of the local sporting community.

Jim Gunn

Jim Gunn

The former Buckingham Athletic manager, who is currently on the managerial staff at Newport Pagnell, is a very good friend of Sports Shots and we are only to pleased to appeal to our followers for help.

Gunn said “I have been speaking to someone in Zambia and been told that they are football crazy but they have no kits, boots or balls to play matches with. It would go down a storm if we could send out a few bits and pieces. I am happy to collect and I will get the stuff delivered somehow. Any help would be really appreciated. We are looking for complete kids kits, adult kits, boots of all sizes, keeper gloves. Can I ask clubs if they have any old but complete kits that are not being used then I hope they will consider donating them”.

If you can help Jim, then please do not hesitate to support this great cause. You can contact him on jamesgunn1962@gmail.com
