Get TIE'D UP for Pakati

21 March 2022

When the Iron visit Bradford City on 23rd April, United season ticket holder Chris Walker is calling on both sets of fans to support his charity Friends of Pakati.

Fans are encouraged to “get tie’d up” by coming to the game wearing a shirt or a blouse with a tie and a club scarf, and to donate £1 to the charity.

The money raised will be used to donate much-needed computers to Pakati Secondary School – where Chris was once a teacher – in Murewa, Zimbabwe.

“Regardless of which team you support, please get involved," said Chris.

“People can wear the tie in whichever way they want. Hopefully we can all come together to support a good cause."

Chris has been fundraising for Friends Of Pakati since he launched the project in January 2019.

The work comes more than 30 years on from when he started work as a teacher at Pakati Secondary School in Zimbabwe. The donations accumulated through the fundraising project will help primary and secondary schools in Zimbabwe to buy IT equipment.

The project is an ongoing one though and Chris is looking for further donations to go towards buying more items for the schools.

Any fans wishing to make a donation and help Chris can do so through the Friends of Pakati fundraising page; gofundme.com/friends-of-pakati.
