Fundraiser to support Brikama United

Jun 9, 2011, 2:22 PM

In a move to support in-form and leading division one side Brikama United and other development projects in Brikama, the Brikama Youth and Sports Committee is set to embark on a fundraising show with notable artistes from Senegal and The Gambia later this month.

Bringing Senegalese star Pape Diouf, Jaliba Kuyateh and other artistes will help the committee to construct dressing rooms and erection of a pavilion at the Brikama Mini-stadium.

The show is scheduled to take place from 17 to 19 June 2011 and members of the organising committee are optimistic that the show will help to raise enough funds to prepare ahead of the Western Region giant’s strive to clinch the national league.

The West Coast region outfit, who have had a glittering first round campaign after they bagged 25 points in eleven league matches, remain on course of clinching their first ever national division one league championship title to represent The Gambia in the Caf Club Champions league.
