Wendover Junior Football Club (WJFC) Donate Old Kit to Charity

Over the last few seasons WJFC have re-kitted out all our teams with new match kit and training tops provided by Admiral. In doing so we collected in all old kit and decided to look for opportunities to put this to good use.

Lord’s Taverners is a charity which is primarily focused on improving youth and disabled access to sport.  Through investment in facilities and equipment, the charity focuses on creating opportunities for children, those who are living in poverty, and those with disabilities to access sport and recreation facilities.  Their sports kit recycling programme helps young people, both in the UK and abroad to access equipment.  Lack of access to the correct kit or equipment is one of the biggest barriers preventing children playing sport.  Our unused kit has been delivered to a collection hub and once it has been sorted, it will be distributed to a partner organisation in the UK or abroad. In total, we have donated over 260 individual items of good quality playing kit that will greatly benefit children and their community.

If you have any old WJFC kit lying in cupboards or at the back of the wardrobe we would be delighted to receive this and add to our next donation to the Lord’s Taverners. Items can be returned to the Club at the Clubhouse (next to Little Acorns) on the Wendover schools’ campus on a Saturday morning (and why not buy a cup of tea or coffee whilst your there). Alternatively, you can contact our Chairman, Robert Dalby at robert.dalby2@ntlworld.com to arrange collection.
