Parcel number 7 arrived very quickly and safely in Uganda at the Orphanage last week.
A huge thank you to everyone that donated to the collection at the club allowing us to be able so send it.
Another 12 pairs of boots were sent to the children allowing them to learn to play with boots on. They are still desperate for the larger size of football boots Adult size 5 and above it anyone has any lying around they would like to donate, please pop them into the club.

The Saints Community Project raises money for #Our Project Uganda
On Friday 19th October several members of the Saints Community Project volunteered their time to organise a raffle, bag pack and collect small change in the hope of being able to collect enough to send another parcel out to Uganda this month.
With a huge thank you to Tesco store Brackley and the hard work of Project members we were able to collect an amazing £205.00 in a few hours meaning our 8th parcel of secondhand sporting equipment will be heading to the orphanage next week.
A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed to this project.
We have been asked by several people about the possibility of sending out shoe boxes at Christmas for the children. With nearly 300 children in the care of the orphanage this is too much of an undertaking. However during the month of November we will have a Christmas collection box where we welcome a small donation of a £1. The box will be in the kitchen so please ask if you would like to donate. We will then use this money to purchase toothbrushes, toothpaste soap, colouring books and pens for all the children from a shop in Uganda. This will then be given out to the children for Christmas.
