Ide Hill FC confirmed with the residents of Ide Hill that the clubhouse build would start in the third week of January 2015. A snapshot of the letter is below:
As you may be aware Ide Hill Football Club has been trying to build a new clubhouse for a number of years now. Finally, after a lot of fundraising and numerous legal issues, we are very pleased to announce that building will commence around the third week of January 2015.
This will hopefully not cause too much inconvenience to you, but we thought we would let you know an outline of the works and keep you updated as to the progress, these are listed below:
Once again, we do apologise for any inconvenience the build may cause and we hope you see this development as an improvement to the village facilities, whilst being a benefit to both our adult and youth sides (most of whom attend the village primary school).
Dear Mr. Keith McGinn,
Thank you very much for choosing to support our NGO and making the special effort to visit our office with gifts for the children of our projects.
Unfortunately on the day of your visit I was away at one of our many projects and did not get a chance to meet you. However my staff gave me all the information about you.
The gifts that you brought have been distributed amongst the kids of our Street Children Project and were hugely appreciated by all. Am attaching a few pictures taken at the time of distribution, as well as some of our boys playing football. I cannot express in words how happy they were, but the pictures say it all !
Please follow us on Facebook and share information about us with your friends. When you are in Mumbai and would like to visit any of our projects, please let me know and I would be happy to take you around personally.
Thanks and warm regards,
Maharashtra State Women's Council
