England football legend, John Barnes is visiting all Premier League clubs to collect signed shirts from Britain’s top flight as part of a five day UK wide Van-Dash in aid of charitable campaign Score Ethiopia – a partnership between Wash & Go shampoo and educational charity Link Ethiopia.

 The shirts will be auctioned off to raise funds for water amenities, schools and football facilities in the Gondar region of Ethiopia through the Wash&Go Score Ethiopia Ebay auction. 

John Barnes visited the town of Lalibela and experienced Ethiopia’s critical needs as well as the people’s passion to play football even in the face of adversity.

He said: "All over the world people play football with whatever they can get their hands on. A can, rolled up clothes or a milk carton make a ball. But rarely have I witnessed such passion for the ‘beautiful game’ as I did in Ethiopia. The sport brings communities together, promotes health and well being. However, Ethiopia is a beautiful yet very poor country. Wash & Go’s Score Ethiopia is looking to raise as much money as possible to deliver vital amenities and football facilities. A little money can make a lot of Ethiopian’s happy!"

 

The week long tour of England kicked-off at Newcastle’s St. James’s Park on 1st September, with the final whistle blowing at Portsmouth’s Fratton Park on 5th. 

The campaign builds on Wash & Go’s rich football heritage and was conceived when UK based volunteer, Mairead Macbeth, won a full adult Sunday league team kit in a 2006 competition. Having seen Ethiopia’s enthusiasm for football first hand, she decided to send the kit to the town of Lalibela. The gesture has since forged a partnership between Link Ethiopia and Wash & Go, championing perhaps the greatest level of grass roots football in the world.

I thought the &quot;V&quot; design was only being used for Manchester United&#039;s kit to commemorate the first time United won the FA cup because they wore a white shirt with a red V that time... Still, doesnt mean nike wont use them for every template
