Brisbane Roar-s charitable spirit was on display when a unique combination of music and football joined together in Brisbane-s inner-northern suburbs.

The Mitchelton Football Club recently hosted the Ugandan based Watato Children-s Choir for an entertaining day of singing, football and friendship.

A part of an organisation dedicated to responding to the ‘cry of the orphaned and vulnerable children of Africa-, the Watato Children-s Choir tours the world voicing a song of hope.

Making a stopover at Mitchelton Football Club on their Australian tour, choir members pitted their football skills against the club-s juniors.

With one or two talented footballers amongst their ranks, the choir was presented with 30 pairs of boots donated by Soccerworld and a host of backpacks by Brisbane.

The Watato Children-s Choir helps to raise awareness of the issues Ugandan people face due to the AIDS epidemic and civil war of the past 22 years.
