recently received a request from Simon Graham, a registrar at Alder Hey
hospital in Liverpool, for some kit. We spoke and met up with Simon and
became inspired by his work and the fact that he wanted shirts to take out to a
hospital in Malawi to give to the children once they had undergone
Our slogan of “It’s more than just a shirt” could not be closer
to the truth and Simon has sent through some great photos of the children
recuperating in their new Liverpool/Everton shirts.
truly inspiring story, well done and thank you Simon
Derrick Williams attended Ashton gate recently to take in the Bristol City v Fleetwood Town game. The reason behind Derrick's visit was the brilliant work Bristol Sport had done in collecting 600 plus shirts since the start of the season.
A presentation was made to Derrick by his very own namesake Bristol City defender Derrick Williams. It's great to be involved with a new club and everyone at KitAid wishes Bristol City all the best with the rest of the season and there push for promotion to the Championship.
Williams, was honoured to represent KitAid as a guest of Graham Taylor at
Vicarage Road, on Saturday.
FC made the decision to name one of the stands after Graham in recognition of
the fantastic achievements during his reign as both manager and Chairman.
This was greeted by a massive chorus from all four stands of “there’s only one
Graham Taylor” when he stepped on to the pitch surrounded by former players to
officially rename the stand.
said he felt honoured and proud to see the Patron of KitAid receive the
recognition from the club and the fans. We are very fortunate to have
Graham as our Patron and he is a true gentleman and a legend.
At KitAid's most recent boxing up session we hit an unbelievable milestone of 250'000 items of kit sent around the world. In order to celebrate this amazing achievement we filmed what a typical boxing up session looks like and a few words from charities and volunteers that make KitAid such a success.
15 November 2014 will be remembered by KitAid for many years to come as it was
the official boxing up session where we passed the major milestone of donating
250,000 items of kit since 1998.
boxing up team stopped to recognise this amazing figure with a specially made
footy shirt cake and the session was also filmed for a You Tube story board. On
the day we also sent out a new record of 142 boxes of kit and this has bought
the total number of boxes for 2014 to a new record figure of 1,048. The
previous highest figure for a single year was 963 in 2010 and we still have a
month to go!
thanks to everyone who supports us at boxing up sessions and to those who
donate kit, we couldn’t do it without you.
