A local teacher has teamed up with Ellon United to provide a football team in China with their own sports kit.

Cara Bewick, who lives in Ellon, is currently volunteering as an English teacher in Jiayuguan, China with Project Trust.

She has been out in China for the last eight months and during this time she started the school’s first girls football team.

Cara said: “I used to play myself at Ellon Academy and I thought it would be a great thing for the school here.

“Recently we started playing matches but we did not have a football kit, so I contacted Ellon United and Tracey Gammack very kindly organised a donation of a full kit for all of the team.

“After some fundraising to get the kits sent out they have arrived and the girls love them, we are so thankful for Ellon United’s help.”
