“More than a shirt, feeding a passion for life”

Keep up to date with our news what we're doing in the world of KitAid and sport

Saturday, 4 December 2010

Thanks to all of our volunteers today who joined us for our final boxing up session of the year.  It was a great way to end a record breaking year for KitAid.

We should start a sweepstake in January but if we had one at the start of this year I don’t think we could have predicted that we would finish 2010 by sending out a record breaking 963 boxes.  This amounts to 33,705 items of kit that we have received, sorted and boxed up.  A fantastic achievement and really good fun as well.  Incredible to think of 33,705 smiles across the world.

Today’s session resulted in kit being delivered to Tanzania, Ghana, Burundi, Mauritius, Ukraine, Gambia and Eritrea.

Special thanks to Sean and Paul who had to unload 4,000 footballs and then load 25 boxes on to the 5speed lorry.  We now have over 6,000 footballs in stock which should keep us going for the next few years.

At the next session we will have some volunteers from the University of Herts, which should help and we may even stretch to two boxing up sessions per month.

Thanks for all your help in 2010 and have a fantastic Christmas
