Marine FC is proud to have been named as Patron of the charity and will support on fundraising initiatives and to raise awareness for the great work that continues to go on behalf of the charity.
James Leary CEO of Marine: “The Waterloo Partnership is a well-known local charity and has done unbelievable work in helping support the people of Waterloo, Sierra Leone. I hope that through this partnership we can continue to support the work to further enhance the charity.”
David Moorhead, trustee of The Waterloo Partnership: ” The people of Waterloo, Sierra Leone are incredibly resilient and hopeful. They have endured a civil war, poverty, Ebola and Covid. They are my heroes. Football is a huge passion in Waterloo, Sierra Leone. Many follow the English Premier League and where there is a rough patch of ground you will see children in bare feet playing football. Therefore, the charity is delighted to have Marine FC as its patron as we all work to build a fairer world.”
