North Shields Football Club are delighted to join arms with KitAid to donate our old Blue and Black football kit. This is the very start of a healthy relationship between the football club and KitAid.
KitAid is a charity that recycles your once loved football kit and distributes to underprivileged children and adults in some of the world’s poorest countries.
Since 1998, close to 600,000 individuals, or 40,000 teams from across the developing world, now have access to football kit thanks to Team KitAid.
This is an enormous amount of kit, enough to fill Wembley Stadium six times over. This has been achieved by a small group of volunteers who are driven by a passion to share their love of football and sport, with those, who through circumstances beyond their control, cannot participate through a lack of equipment. Little KitAid has proved that with passion, perseverance and a vision we can all make a difference and give something back.
We have a saying at KitAid – “It’s more than just a shirt”
A football shirt, full kit or boots can help our partner charities to engage with the communities they work in to deliver their projects. They vary from Education, Social Inclusion, Crime prevention, drug/alcohol misuse, protecting endangered chimpanzees from poachers and preventing gun related gang murders. The list is endless.
Your kit donation counts and will bring happiness to many different people, projects and teams across the developing world.
Thank you on behalf of KitAid
