Notes

I attended a charity event for Demba Ba’s street children sanctuary in Dakar Senegal. His ex team mates turned out in support they raised almost £300,000 pounds for the project. These guys turned up and the Chelsea mob even took time out from their open bus your to lend Demba their presence. It was a great touch.
