A great draw as it brings 2 clubs who have supported KA together. I have sponsored the match ball in KA’s name and David Ingham (RC for Cumbria) is a mad Barrow supporter and will be travelling down. David doesn’t really get the chance to get to many of our events so it will be a nice way of meeting up to share KA news. May the best team win, as long as it is Chesham!!

Barry Lenton did fantastically well in 2012 by collecting 6,600 items of kit and he is re-launching the appeal in Jan with the target of reaching 10,000 items.

He has persuaded BBC Radio Merseyside to support him again so fingers crossed it will be another success. Well done Barry/Marine FC.

In 2012 we sorted, packed and donated 775 boxes of kit which amounts to an amazing 26,775 items.

Across the world we have kitted out the equivalent of 1,785 teams, which is amazing, but even better, we have brought 26,775 smiles and a feeling of hope/pleasure to this many people.

This convinces me it is really worthwhile and together we do make a difference.
