Owls shirts are eastern delight

Have your say

OWLS fan Mark Lomas is off to India – and he’s taking a huge amount of excess luggage with him.

That’s because Mark has packed 71 Sheffield Wednesday shirts – donated by city supporters for distribution in poor communities in Goa.

Mark said: “In Goa the tourism industry is all they have – but when it’s the rainy season, the average monthly wage to staff is about 1,200 rupees, £14.

“I first went eight years ago, but three years ago I decided to buy some Owls shirts off eBay to take out there as I’d seen how crazy they all were for shirts of other teams. “I collected about 25, and handed them out on arrival.

“The look on their faces was something I’ll never forget.

“They treasured them – and to see Owls shirts over there added a bit of something else to our holiday!”
