Palladium sponsors football kit for children

Published:  12 December, 2012

Palladium Builders' Merchant has sponsored football kit for children in Africa. The organisation behind this is Link International which is a charity that gives young people from the UK a chance to experience life and work in Uganda.

Palladium supplied the football kit to the village of Miyana, which is one of the poorest areas of the country. An area was cleared, goal posts were put up and the kit was given out to the children, who have never had a proper football kit before.

"The obvious sense of togetherness was, as you can imagine, overwhelming," said a spokesperson for Palladium. "It was pleasing to see the joy on the children's faces, something so simple made, even just for an afternoon, the children smile and it gave great pleasure to the staff and directors of Palladium Builders Merchants to see the children playing and enjoying themselves."
