The kit collection bins will be next to the Community Unit located behind the JS Stand. Any person who recycles their kit will receive a free junior match voucher.
"This is a great initiative. It not only helps to reduce the amount of waste going into landfill sites but, just as importantly, it helps to provide kit to young people in areas of need across the world.
"If you rummage around in your cupboard, I'm sure you will find an old sports top you no longer need or want. Don't throw it away, or those old trainers or boots lurking at the back, please bring them along on the day and donate to this great cause."
LV= SOS Kit Aid, supported by The Lord's Taverners and the IRB, provides second hand and new rugby/ cricket kit to disadvantaged young people in the UK and overseas by collecting unwanted kit from UK schools, clubs kit manufacturers and other bodies.
The programme makes a positive and tangible impact on young people's lives by giving them the chance to participate in sporting activities. It promotes social inclusion and helps protect the environment through recycling.
Since 2001 the programme has sent £3m worth of recycled kit (= kit for 135,000 children) to 20 developing countries around the world and in the UK. There are 59 more countries on our waiting list. We have also saved over 500 tonnes of Co2 emissions.
Please donate your kit by visiting www.lvsoskitaid.com
The collection marks the start of a much bigger LV= SOS Kit Aid project which the Gloucester Rugby Community team will be working with a number of schools on over the coming few months.
