Here at the Tigers Trust, we are delighted to be part of the BBC’s Make a Difference Kit Out the Nation Campaign.
What is the campaign?
Kit Out the Nation’ is a month long Make a Difference campaign (Saturday 4th September – 16th October) aimed at taking in and distributing unwanted, good condition sports kit and getting it to children and teenagers who need it.
Why are we involved?
We’ve long known of the issue around access to sport and exercise because of the affordability of kit. The situation has been compounded by the pandemic and this is our chance to help to improve that situation.
The Department for Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee published a report on 29th July 2021 where they said data from Sport England showing 100,000 fewer children met the recommended level of activity in 2020 than in 2019 was "of significant concern".
How can you help?
If you have any unwanted sports kit in good condition that could be useful for a child in need, please donate the kit at the Tigers Trust Arena (West Park, Walton Street, Hull, HU3 6GA) before the 16th of October.
Please bring your clean and bagged donations to us during the following times:
Tuesday - (12-5.30pm)
Wednesday - (12-5.30pm)
Thursday - (12-5-30pm)
Saturday - (Before Hull City home games)
