Following a service Melbourne Parish Church (Derbyshire) in November 2014, £500 was donated to support the football project in Kolkata. Teams from 3 CRS Education Centres received new kit: B D Colony now have a yellow strip, Sukanatanagar team play in green and G B Lane wear blue. In addition to shirts and shorts for all the boys, equipment was purchased including 10 new footballs, 40 coloured cones, 12 low hurdles and 2 ladders so that the boys can practice drills.
Mohammed Aman, who studies in Class II at G B Lane school, said “Before we were playing with one ball, now have received 5 footballs. We are enjoying the game very much. We are pleased to have the new jersey.” He and his teammates found it strange at first to use the new training equipment as they were unfamiliar with it but now they are really enjoying football practice.
