word in Sudan
HEARTS supporter John Proudfoot is
gearing up for a six-month tour of the
Sudan helping tackle its violent troubles.
And, thanks to generous Jambos, civil
servant John will take with him dozens
of football strips for children there.
John, from Glasgow, posted details of
his trip recently on Jambos Kickback, and
received dozens of messages of support.
Fans have donated scores of old strips
which he plans to hand out while helping
train local police chiefs in the area.
He is awaiting final clearance for his
visa, and after taking in the last couple
of Hearts games, will head out with two
colleagues to begin his important work
in the region.
