Swift Current Soccer Association Fundraiser

Posted on May 28, 2015



It was a hive of activity in the city of Swift Current on the 23rd of May, 2015. The Swift Current Soccer Association decided to come on board and hold a fund raising event to help source funds for our organisation to enable us to send some soccer uniforms and soccer balls to Zimbabwe. Our Executive Director, Mr. Nyabadza resides in the City of Swift Current where he is also a volunteer soccer coach for the association since 2012. Last weekend the Swift Current Soccer Association was holding its annual soccer fest an event that sees several teams within the province of Saskatchewan taking part. The association therefore approached various business people in the city for donations of prizes which they used to hold a raffle. There were a lot of other activities. A total of CAD $850 was raised. We take this opportunity to thank the Swift Current Soccer Association for coming up with this noble initiative. We also thank the parents and the children who also took turns in manning the stands at the event. It is our sincere hope that we will continue building on this partnership. Who knows some day, some of the members will in the near future have the opportunity to visit Zimbabwe and some of our board members coming the opposite way on an exchange visit to Swift Current. Last but not least, we also wish to thank all the sponsors who provided the prizes thereby helping making the fund raising event a success.
