Kit Out The Nation
4th September - 16th October
Working with BBC Radio Gloucestershire, Freedom Leisure Lydney are taking part in Kit Out The Nation.
Freedom Leisure is delighted to be supporting Kit out the Nation to help provide sports equipment to children and young people who need it in order to get more active.
What is this campaign about?
Kit Out the Nation’ is a BBC month long Make a Difference campaign aimed at taking in and distributing unwanted, good condition sports kit and getting it to children and teenagers who need it. It will mirror the ‘Give a Laptop’ campaign, working with partners around the country.
Why are we doing this?
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.
If you have good condition sports kit that you don't need, don't want anymore or is simply lying around unused, you could make a real difference to a young person's ability to access sport by donating this.
Donations can be made directly to Freedom Leisure Lydney (during centre operating hours) - Church Road, Lydney, GL15 5DZ
