Kit out the nation
Your donation could be the reason a local child can access sport
4th September - 2nd October
In partnership with BBC Radio Lincolnshire, Active Lincolnshire is proud to be taking part in Kit Out The Nation.
What is this campaign about?
Kit Out the Nation’ is a BBC month long Make a Difference campaign aimed at taking in and distributing unwanted, good condition sports kit and getting it to children and young people who need it. It will mirror the ‘Give a Laptop’ campaign, working with partners around the country.
Why are we doing this?
Active Lincolnshire's mission is: more people, more active, more often, and part of achieving that mission is working with our partners to remove as many barriers to participation in sport and physical activity as possible. A huge barrier for participation is affordability and access to the right kit.
Kit out the nation is a fantastic initiative that not only enables more children to get active, through provision of kit, but it is also kind to the environment as equipment that might otherwise have ended up in landfill is being recycled and re-loved.
How can you support?
If you have any old or unused sports kit in good condition that can be passed on to a child in need please donate to our Active Lincolnshire office at Newland House, Weaver Road, Lincoln, LN6 3QN, the office is open Monday - Friday, 9 - 5pm and we’ll ensure it is donated to people who need it.
If you are a club or activity provider with lots of pieces of equipment and/or kit, please call us prior to dropping off on 01522 730 325
