Sports kit donated to clubs in need

Three large boxes of sports kit were donated by Rendcomb College this week to SOS Kit Aid for the benefit of young people in the UK and overseas.

SOS Kit Aid send tonnes of old and unused sports kit to sports clubs in over 20 countries every year. Local volunteer for SOS Kit Aid and former Bath and Plymouth and Albion rugby player Roger Elliott collected the kit from Rendcomb College.

Rendcomb College Games Coach Ed Thomason, who handed over the kit on behalf of the school said: “It’s fantastic to know that our old sports kit is going to a good cause and not to landfill. I encourage all schools and clubs to do the same as it really benefits young people and teams who would otherwise not have access to suitable kit.”

Since their first delivery in 2001, SOS Kit Aid has supported the development of rugby in over 20 countries and has enabled disadvantaged children to obtain the benefits that participation in team sports can deliver.
