Chicken Inn Football Club on Friday donated 114 “one piecer” boxes of chicken and the same number of soft drinks to Mtshede Primary School in Bulawayo’s high-density suburb of Njube.
Learners from Mtshede were taking part in an inter-schools athletics competition at White City Stadium.
B-Metro reported that the donation was handed over to the school’s Teacher in Charge (TIC) Ketiwe Chitsanzara and School Development Committee chairperson Nkosizile Khumalo by Gamecocks’ chairman Juta Tshuma at a function that was held in the city centre. Tshuma said:
First and foremost, it’s a way of giving back to the community. We should also remember that our junior teams train at Mtshede Primary.
So, it’s a kind of partnership that we have with Mtshede Primary and the donation was a thank you gesture as they have provided a home to our junior teams.
Chitsanzara welcomed the donation, saying it will enable learners to compete with vigor. He said:
As a school, we are very happy about such a gesture which makes our learners compete with vigour.
We say thank you so much to Chicken Inn. This is a very big donation to us and it means a lot to us.
