dfcu Bank supports renovation of Pece stadium

dfcu Bank has today handed over 1,000 bags of cement valued at over UGX 30 million that will go towards the rehabilitation of Pece War Memorial Stadium in preparation for the 2017 edition of the East African Secondary School Games. The handover, which was made to representatives of Gulu District, took place at Pece War Memorial Stadium.

Over 1,000 schools are expected to take part in the 16th edition of the East African Secondary School Games and will be hosted by St Joseph College, Layibi and Sacred Heart Girls School. The students are expected to take part in a variety of indoor and outdoor games including football, rugby, netball, basketball, volleyball, handball, hockey, chess, swimming and badminton.

 

Speaking at the handover ceremony, the dfcu Bank Northern Regional Manager Christopher Kinyera said the contribution to the renovation of the stadium was a display of the Bank’s commitment to the development of the communities in which it operates.

 

dfcu Bank holds the growth of our communities in high regard- we believe that we have a responsibility to help our society make socio-economic advancements that in turn, benefit us all,” Kinyera said.

 

“This contribution is going to help with the renovation of Pece Stadium where these regional games will take place, and we are honored to be part of this because we understand the power of sports in Uganda.             We are aware that the people of Gulu are passionate about sports- partnered with their great hospitality, we are confident that this is the perfect venue for an activity of this magnitude. We are excited to be a part of this,” he concluded. The games are scheduled for August this year.
