Spireites In Shirts For Africa Appeal

Chesterfield have launched an appeal to help footballers in the African area of Tsumeb by providing them with football shirts.

As many Tsumeb residents do not have the funds to buy a football shirt, an appeal was made by the Spireites in 2006 for supporters to donate their old Chesterfield shirts.

The initiative was a huge success and hundreds of shirts were sent to Tsumeb, which is twinned with the north Derbyshire town.

That same need still exists so fans are asked to take any unwanted Chesterfield shirts to the Club Superstore at the Proact Stadium and they will be sent out in a container in early December.

As a thank you, anyone donating an old shirt will be eligible for a 10% discount on a new home shirt and a 15% discount on a new away shirt.

“Rather than discard any old shirts, I’d urge fans to donate them to a good cause,” said Chesterfield chief executive Chris Turner. “There’s also the added incentive of receiving a discount on a brand new PUMA shirt.”
