Nigeria: All Stars Club Support Port Harcourt Handicapped, Elderly

In keeping with the spirit of the yuletide, two notable charity homes played host to Goldashe United Football Club of Port Harcourt last Saturday, as food items worth thousands of Naira were donated in support of the occupants.

The Port Harcourt Cheshire and Old People's Homes both of which are located in the Town axis of the city had their hands full with bags of rice, tomatoes, onions and other accompanying condiments which came from the retired footballers.

In his remark at the occasion, the President of the club and Director of Finance and Admin, Government House, Port Harcourt, Mr. Fubara Kingsley Hart said there was no better time to demonstrate affection towards the less privilege in society than Christmas, a time the world is rejoicing over the greatest gift of salvation for mankind.

Fubara Kingsley Hart said the occasion was a great experience for him, as he savoured every moment of it.

"For me it is dream come true giving all these items to these elderly citizens many of whom do not have children or loved ones to cater for them. As an orphan, I will cherish this experience because it makes me feel like I am giving these things to my real parents" he said, adding that Goldashe would make the exercise an annual ritual.
