|Support for African Schools - 18/7/16|
|Deveronvale have very generously donated a supply of old football strips to the Global leadership academy, Jeffery's Bay,South Africa.
The strips will be taken to south Africa by a team of 17 people from Riverside Christian Church in Banff. The team will be there for 10 days.
The School in Jeffrey's Bay is part of a bigger christian Community called Global Challenge that Riverside Christian Church has very close ties with.
Global Academy is a school of mixed race and the pupils come from both well off and poor backgrounds. This school goes a long way in seeing breakthroughs where there has been serious racial divides."
Rob McArthur team leader says "The football shirts will be worn proudly by the school teams in various inter school competitions.”
Deveronvale chairman, Jim Mair commented “we at the Club are very happy to provide a small measure of support to this initiative and wish the Riverside Christian Church a successful trip to the Eastern Cape of South Africa."
