Will work with clubs to provide kit for the underprivileged
The Evo-Stik Northern Premier League is delighted to announce KitAid as its official charity partner for 2011/12 season. KitAid is a registered charity which collects and sends no longer wanted football kit (shirts, shorts, goalie gloves and shinpads in good condition) to children and adults who also love football but would only ever dream of owning their own kit.
Speaking at Saturday's Evo-Stik League Awards, KitAid founder Derrick Williams MBE said, "Since 1998 we have donated more than 150,000 items of kit all across the World. Please encourage your supporters to donate their unwanted kit. Our regional co-ordinators will arrange to collect from your club, so there’s no hassle involved. To make this cost effective and environmentally friendly, ideally we like to collect a decent amount to make it worth the journey.
"We’re also completely independent from any Evo-Stik League member club and the league itself. Your support is entirely voluntary, but could make a massive difference to children and adults who are as passionate about football as you are."
