James Gillespie's High School staff and students have just returned from their latest trip to South Africa during which they handed over more than fifty surplus AC Oxgangs kits for schools and organisations in Durban.

Fifth year student Eadie McCallum, who liaised with the Club during the appeal, has kindly provided us with some photos and and sends the following message ...

"I returned from South Africa a few days ago and I would like to thank you on behalf of James Gillespie’s High school, Dloko High School and the Umthombo Street Kids Project for the donation of strips. They were received with the hugest appreciation by these young people and I have never seen anyone so happy. All of the people pictured live in a township called Umlazi outside Durban. These kids get one meal a day at the school soup kitchen and many walk for hours every morning just to get an education. These strips may not have changed their lives forever but it certainly put a smile on the young people’s faces for now and I can tell that they will treasure their present from AC Oxgangs for many years to come."
