In keeping with a well established tradition, Friends of The Gambia Association, (FoTGA), a renowned UK charity organization supporting education and humanitarian services in The Gambia on Monday presented 24 medals, a trophy and £500 to the Brufut Marathon Association (BMA) as its contribution to the 2012 run slated for December 8.

The presentation took place at the offices of FoTGA on Kotu Road presided over by David Smith, honorary treasurer of FoTGA, who said: “We are once again happy to donate to the Brufut marathon, a gesture we started many years ago. We noted and wish to thank the BMA members for their hard work that made the event grow from a single race to many events.”

In receiving the items, Ba S. Jabbie, chairman of the BMA, conveyed gratitude to FoTGA for their long history of support to the BMA.

He assured Mr Smith that the items, as usual, will be used for the intended purposes to make this year’s event more memorable and rewarding to all participants.
