The gift of water!
Voyonic, like Guernsey FC, are keen to be seen to be green, and offered to allow The Green Lions to donate the remaining stock of CESG-branded water bottles to a charity. Guernsey FC chose to donate the bottles to Goal50.
Nigel Pascoe, Chairman of Goal50 explained why the water bottles donated by the Voyonic Group would be appreciated by the children from the Cape Flats, South Africa.
“The supply of water in the township settlements is very limited. On one previous trip, we held a football competition in Langa township. There was only one water pipe serving 600 people. The Voyonic sponsored GFC water bottles will be greatly appreciated by the African people.”
Goal50 is a charity that supports a South African soccer school, which is based in an area where drug and gang problems are rife. As well as providing football facilities, Goal50 supports the local community with feeding programmes, job schemes and help with drug rehabilitation.
Thank you Goal50 Guernsey for ensuring the bottles have gone to a great cause and Guernsey FC for their assistance in making it happen.
