BBC’s Make a Difference Kit out the Nation Campaign.
It runs for a whole month, and is aimed at taking in and distributing unwanted, good condition sports kit and getting it to children and teenagers who need it. So, check out your cupboards, sort out the bedrooms – and if you’ve got unwanted sports kit
or equipment, help us get them to children and young adults. You could help make a real difference to a young person’s ability to access sport and to get more active.
In July, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee published data from Sport England which showed 100,000 fewer children met the recommended level of activity in 2020 than in 2019 and it was “of significant concern”.
There has been a long standing issue around access to sport and exercise due to the affordability of kit. From now until Saturday 16th October, we are proud to be part of the BBC’s campaign, aiming to get kit and sports equipment to the schools and clubs where a young person can use it.
Good condition equipment, that would otherwise go to landfill or simply remain in cupboards, could get an extended life and help a young person get active. Let’s work together and give the nation’s young people a chance to be more active!
Please bring your clean and bagged donations to us at:
