Sports kit recycling
We recycle sports kit to give young people at home and abroad a sporting chance. Our kit recycling programme equips UK clubs and developing nations with high-quality kit donated by manufacturers, clubs and members of the public. Recycling unwanted kit helps clubs increase participation among young people while reducing the build-up of kit in landfill sites.
I HAVE KIT I WANT TO DONATE
If you have kit you would like to donate or would like to become a collection hub, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
See the map below for our collection hubs (for collecting and sorting your donated kit) and the contact details for each hub:
DONATING YOUR KIT
You can donate your kit during the 2017 pre-season between Saturday 18 March and Sunday 2 April.
We collect unwanted cricket, football and rugby equipment and general sports clothing. We would also really like coaching equipment such as cones, bibs, whistles and tennis balls.
For a full list of what we do and don't collect please see our collection standards document.

WHERE YOUR KIT GOES
We send kit to where it is needed most in both the UK and developing nations. We work with partner charities in country to make sure the kit reaches its final destination and is used to supplement an established coaching programme.
Latest kit deliveries: Northern Ireland (cricket kit), Gambia (cricket kit & clothing), Antigua (cricket kit & clothing) and St. Kitts (cricket kit).
