River CC help for purchasing Millbank School football strips

At their regular meeting last week, Chair Tommy read out a letter  from the coach of the Millbank football teams, seeking financial help for the purchase of two strips. The school have both a boys and a girls team and the present kit is getting into a poor state - a new outfit for both teams would cost £520. The letter stated: "In today's financial climate, funding for such extras are in short supply."

Speaking in favour of a donation Andrew Purkis said: "Parents are continuously asked to help schools with donations. I think in the present climate there have been many people struggling financially. I think we should help out, especially if we can help the girls because I'm all for girls getting into these sports which is a male dominated area."

The River folkies voted unanimously in favour of donating £150 to Millbank. Anyone in Gurnshire with a bit of spare cash could  maybe contact Millbank if they too wish to help?

It would be (Nice)if the other Nairn Community Councils in Nairn helped with this as well not just Riverside Community Council making a donation of £150 which doesent cover the full cost. These children need to be encouraged in taking part in sport but people seem to be throwing there money else where.
