Friends of The Gambia, FOTGA have gone a step ahead of just sending condolences to the Jallow family, following the sudden death of Mamudou Max Jallow. Fotga have opened a new page on their Virgin Money Giving Site for his friends and loved ones, to make a donation in memory of Max Jallow. According to Fotga, all proceeds will be given to the Jallow family in Brufut.

Martin Myers, a member of the Fotga Drumbeat said, “We’ve all been deeply saddened by the death of Mamudou Max Jallow, who sadly passed away on 19th May 2013.

“Max was a founder member of the Brufut Marathon Association and a staunch supporter and friend of our charity, Friends of The Gambia Association.

“Max touched the lives of so many people, both in The Gambia and here in the UK.His passion, drive and talent were clear for all to see and admire.

“His work as the Executive Secretary of the National Sports Council enabled him to break down barriers within Gambian sport and youth development.

“The legacy he left behind in this role will live on long after his curtailed life.”
