After being contacted by Mark Cockerton, a City fan who has been helping to supply aid to a village school in Gambia, the Tigers donated dozens of kits to aid youngsters with their love of sport and help them stand out against other villages.
The school was overwhelmed by the support received, so much so that all of their sports teams will now be known as St Michael’s Tigers.
After returning from his trip to Gambia, Mark said: “As you can imagine, the Hull City shirts went down very well, although the teachers had to lock the shirts away at first as all the children rushed to try and grab one.
“Every school team, which includes football and volleyball for males and females, will now be known as St Michael’s Tigers.
“All in all, we now have a Gambian Hull City supporters club. I’ve been teaching them some of the songs, but not necessarily all of the ones that I hear from my seat in the East Stand!”
Since his initial visit earlier this year, the City shirts have been numbered and printed with the name ‘St Michael’s Tigers’.
This latest donation is one of a number the Tigers have made in the last 18 months to help those who are less fortunate than ourselves.
