Club Good Deeds: Zenit host visitors from Yukki orphanage
On 25 October at the Gazprom's Training Centre, the club hosted graduates and orphans from the Vyborg region orphanage that cares for deaf children.
"The guys were interested in absolutely everything," said Yulia Semenova from the school. We saw the city and got to see our favourite team train and not only see how they train, but also got to talk with the players, have photos and get their autographs. It was also very nice how Sergey Fursenko, the president of the club spent time talking with our guys. The kids are really into sport and want to get to the Paralympic Games. After such a meeting, they were absolutely delighted and inspired to aim for their future sporting dreams! We thank Zenit for the opportunity and the warm welcome!"
The visit to the training centre was the latest event in the project "Club Good Deeds" a social programme that brings together all the Zenit family including, players and former players, local students, club organisations and fans. It focuses on any actions or events that help others or do good in the local community.
