Dec 6, 2004
As many of you have already seen, I am off to Ethiopia for 6 weeks this summer. I am working in a school in Mekelle which provides education and care for street children and vulnerable women. For more information on the project please visit: www.ethiopia07.org.uk or search for some of my other posts!

Having spoken to a few people on here, it has been suggested that I see if I can get together a few old Southend United shirts to take out with me. The boys are totally football mad and I think a Mekelle Branch of Shrimperzone FC would be a pretty awesome feat.

I would take these shirts with me when I fly out on July 25th and can distribute myself to the boys I will be working with. Naturally I will be taking my camera with me and will take a good selection of pictures of your prized shirts in action.

If you feel able to donate a shirt or two, Ken who works at the Spread has kindly offered to help me out. If you PM him (mcnasty) he can arrange a time with you to drop them off. I will then collect them from him before I leave. Alternatively, you can post them to me at work: Mr A Lewis, St John Payne School, Patching Hall Lane, Chelmsford, Essex, CM1 4BS.

Thanks in advance for your help, it really will make a difference to the children in Ethiopia!

Andy :)
