SPORTING activities are taking place near Sheffield this weekend to raise funds for play centres in Gaza.
The event takes place at Killamarsh Sports Centre this Saturday, October 13, and has been organised by Sheffield Palestine Solidarity Campaign.
For the past 17 years the campaign has been helping Palestinians in three refugee camps run study and play activities for children.
Books, computers and toys have also been sent from Sheffield to the children of Gaza over the years.
The sports day will be opened by Sheffield Coun Jillian Creasey and there will be a talk by Mohammed Al Majdalawi, a young Palestinian filmmaker who will speak about what the work has done for his country.
