Trust and Club combine for kit help

Blackburn Rovers and the Rovers Trust have teamed up to help send football kit to a Kenyan Orphanage follwoing a cry for help from a member of the supporters trust.

Darren Gudgeon, is a British soldier based in Nairobi, Kenya and is also a lifelong Blackburn Rovers fan. Darren provides regular help to the orphanage in question as part of his day job but felt that the children there would recieve a welcome football boost with the help of his favourite football team.

All Rovers fans are being asked to donate any unwanted or spare items of kit they might have and Blackburn Rovers has agreed that Ewood Park can be the collection point, as well as helping with the appeal.

Mr Gudgeon added some weight to the appeal himself with some comments made to the Rovers Trust directly - "I would love to see them kitted out in blue and white.

"I showed them footage of a Rovers game on my iPad and they were fascinated, not only by the football, but by the iPad too, it was like something from the future to them.'

Greg Coar, head of commercial and marketing at Blackburn Rovers, added in with his own plea - "We are delighted to help the Rovers Trust with this appeal.

"It`s a worthwhile initiative and it is good to see Rovers fans making a difference around the world helping children play football and learn more about Blackburn Rovers.

"Hopefully, they will grow up to be Rovers fans."

Anyone with spare items of kit who would like to support Darren and the Kenyan children can donate them at Ewood Park where a special bin will be located inside the Rovers store.
