Blackburn Rovers star David Dunn believes the hype
5:55pm Tuesday 12th March 2013 in Sport
Blackburn Rovers star David Dunn presented a juniors football kit to Blackburn United.
The presentation was made as community group One Voice celebrated its first Annual Dinner.
The group has been set up to improve the social and economic well being of the most deprived communities in the area.
David made the presentation on behalf of the Hype Foundation group.
John Magee (Mister Consequence) said, “It is a huge honour and privilege for Hype to be associated with One Voice and as Blackburn lad it makes me proud to see such cohesion in the community and I believe things can only go from strength to strength.”
David Dunn said, “Many thanks to Khalid Saifullah and everybody from One Voice for making myself and John feel so welcome, we are looking forward to supporting their vision alongside our local charity Hype.”
Fayaz Bharucha of Blackburn United who accepted the kit said, “We at the Club are delighted to receive the football kit and even more delighted it was presented from someone like David Dunn."
“The players are going to be overjoyed with the new kit and hope to work with David and his foundation collaboratively in the future too. Blackburn United runs a number of junior teams.”
