Engineering Services, team up with Heart of Midlothian Football
Club to provide soccer strips to Busoga College Mwiri, in Jinja,
Release Body: Braidwood Associates has teamed
up with Heart of Midlothian Football Club to
make a special donation to Busoga College Mwiri, in Jinja, Uganda.
Associates, leading independent Traffic Planning
Engineering Services consultancy, has linked up with the African
school through the Graduate Transportation Modeller, Grant
K. Rugarama. Grant went to the school as a child and
wanted to give something back to his homeland. The Ugandan was
quick to identify a link with his own heroes, the current Hearts
manager Csaba Laszlo and midfielder David
Obua. The Hearts manager was formerly manager of the
Ugandan team and David Obua is one of the country's best players.
star Obua said: "I heard of Grant's plan and
I thought it was a great idea. Both the manager and I were happy
to help him with a donation of full team kit for his school. His
company Braidwood Associates came to the club and we were happy
to help. In Uganda things can be difficult in certain areas in
terms of sporting equipment and sports clothing and I have no
doubt that the children at Grant's former school will be delighted
with the gift."
Braidwood, managing director, Braidwood Associates, said:
"We have worked in most corners of the world advising
on traffic management and infrastructure projects
and when Grant asked if there was something we could do to help
his former school I was happy to help. We obviously both know
what a big club Hearts is and when we approached the club to agree
this deal both Csaba and David were very keen to help us promote
the agreement. Grant has contributed a lot to Braidwood Associates
and this seemed a great way to help him meet his heroes while
also helping his former school."
Associates has supplied $2000 worth of Hearts soccer
strips to the school.
