Recycle Your Old Kit

posted Jul 2, 2019, 12:55 AM by Club Webmaster
AFC Waverton are delighted to have partnered with KitAid to recycle any old football shirts, shorts, socks, shinpads and GK gloves that may be in garages, lofts and wardrobes.
We will have deposit points within the village hall between 10am and 2pm on the day of our end of season event on 14th July 2019 so if you have any old football kits (not just AFC Waverton) then please bring them and lets support his worthwhile charity. Plus, if you have outgrown football boots which still have life in them, more details will be coming out soon about our plans to recycle them too.
PLEASE NOTE: for the moment, please do not donate your current mbna kit! Please hold onto these for now – we will hold a follow on collection day after the new season starts to collect these once the new kit has arrived and been distributed.
About KitAid

Finding a home for your unwanted football kit in Africa and beyond KitAid is a charity set up by, Derrick Williams MBE, who visited Tanzania on a WaterAid supporters' trip in 1998. Derrick, being a mad footie fan, was amazed at the reception he received from children and adults in remote villages just because he wearing his favourite football shirt (Watford, Chesham Utd, Liverpool FC to name a few).

After two weeks in Tanzania, a flame was lit in Derrick's heart and he was on a mission to provide kit and equipment to the bare-footed children playing with footballs made of tied string and plastic bags. Over twenty years on, KitAid has sent out hundreds of thousands of kits to children and adults in 40 different countries across the world.
Many thanks as always for your continued support.
