The management, coaches and players of former Nigerian Professional Football League champions, Rangers International F.C, on Saturday made donations of food stuffs and toiletries to two less privileged homes in Enugu.
Led by technical adviser of the side, Coach Olugbenga Ogunbote, the team made presentations to Guardian Angels Motherless Babies Home, Emene, and Enugu Cheshire Home, Uwani, both in Enugu metropolis.
In a short speech after making the presentations, Ogunbote said: “It is with great joy that we as a team make this little donations for the upkeep of the home. We feel obliged to make this with the consent of the general manager, Prince Davidson Owumi, who is unavoidably absent. We hope to make this more regular.”
Sister Martins-Agnes Ibewuike, matron of Guardian Angels Motherless Babies Home said: “We appreciate greatly your gesture towards our home and pray the good Lord to continue to prosper in your chosen endeavors.”
In her reaction, the matron of Enugu Cheshire Home, Uwani, Enugu, Mrs. Onaga Beatrice, said: “It is with joy that we welcome your team to our home and thank you for these gifts. Our prayers is for better performance from you people when you take on other opponents.”
The Flying Antelopes made the trip as part of their corporate social responsibility to their city and also to relax their minds as they prepare to host El-Kanemi Warriors who are currently tutored by their title winning coach, Imama Amapakabo on Sunday in Enugu.
