The Kidron Volleyball Club, with
the help of a generous donation, recently donated shirts and balls to Kotido S.S. School in Uganda. Prior to the donation,
there were no shirts and just one ball for more than 100 young students. KVBC donated 100 shirts and 25 balls for a clinic
run by former Central Christian player and Kidron Volleyball Club coach Annali Murray (center, photo below).
is a report from Annali:
"The volleyball clinic was exceptionally well received. Both the athletic director
of Kotido S.S. and the Headmaster were absolutely thrilled by what you and your club did for the girls at Kotido S.S. From
8:00-11:00 Alisa (Murray) and I ran drills and practiced some fundamentals. We also had a short scrimmage time at the end.
I am sure that Kotido S.S. has never had such an interest taken in their volleyball department. I know your gift
of volleyballs will have an impact on their school for many years.
Following the training, some of the girls came
up to me and asked me where they should put the shirts. When I told them they could keep them and use them as jerseys they
literally began jumping around screaming and dancing. I wish you could have been there to see how excited they were." (From The Daily Record, 7/15/12)
