As one way of celebrating the success of 2015 TNM Super League season with fans, the 2015 champions Big Bullets, in conjunction with the sponsors TNM, made a donation of an oxygen concentrator and food stuff worth K1.9 million to Zomba Central Hospital.
Speaking during the handover ceremony of items at the hospital on Wednesday, 14th January, 2916, TNM head of the region South, Francis Mwamadi, said it is the company’s wish to always be with people.
“This is part of our corporate social responsibility aiming at thanking football fans for being with us during the 2015 season. At TNM we believe that we should always give back to people who always support us,” Mwamadi said.
Mwamadi commended people for the support they rendered to the league in 2015 season.
“I would like to commend football fans for patronising the games as evidenced by an increase in revenue collected in last year’s season and it is our sincere hope that they will continue as we launch the 2016 season,” he said.
Bullets captain Fisher Kondowe, who led the team, thanked the sponsors for the initiative, saying that is one way of saying “thank you” to football fans.
“We are happy to donate this item to our brothers and sisters here at the hospital,” the captain said. “This is the way to go because these people who are here today support the team in different ways and as such we need to come and visit them.”
Zomba Central Hospital Chief Administrator Thom Chisale commended TNM and Big Bullets for extending their celebrations by donating to the hospital.
“This oxygen concentrator that you are giving to us will go a long way in assisting patients who are the customers of TNM and also supporters of Big Bullets and other teams in the Super League,” he said
The team also donated consumables such as juice, biscuits, soap and sugar to 200 children admitted at the facility’s children’s ward.
In 2014 the People’s Team made similar donation courtesy of TNM at Holy Family mission hospital in Phalombe.
