Some time ago, I came into contact with John Kuypers via an email. John specialises in property development and rental of real estate and is a sponsor of the football club, NAC Breda. John is passionate about football, despite his busy schedule and got in contact with us after receiving a tip. John first contacted us in April 2013, interested in ur Charity and indicating that he’d like to meet with us. He also made it clear at the time, that he was currently unavailable due to other commitments.
We’ve been excitedly waiting and wondering why John wanted a meeting with us, and according to our information, John wanted to sponsor and donate clothes from NAC to our charity. We are obviously very happy that NAC – Breda, are the 7th professional club to join our foundation. We ended up having our meeting with John and his wife in The Gambia, which of course was very special. In an openhearted meeting with John, he stated that NAC would sponsor our foundation by donating clothing and it was agreed that his company would also work with Gambia Sport. He knew that donating material is good and nice to do, but he also realised that finance is needed to transport the goods to The Gambia, and to distribute them when they arrive there. Therefore, his company is sponsoring our charity.
He proudly showed us the example of a beautiful shirt, shorts and training jacket from his club NAC Breda. I was amazed at how beautiful
the NAC clothes were, and it reminded me of another big club, VVV-Venlo who, like NAC, also donated new shirts. We have a lot of confidence in our new partnership with John Kuypers, and wish to thank NAC – Breda and John most sincerely for their donation and cooperation. For anyone interested in renting a holiday home, take a look at www.kuypersverhuur.nl, and see for yourself what holidays they have to offer.
The website of www.nac.nl is also well worth a visit.
On behalf of the youth of The Gambia, thank you sponsors!
