A Marvellous Donation from Whitland RFC

SOS Kit Aid were delighted to receive another marvellous rugby kit donation from Welsh Club Whitland RFC last weekend. Pictured with Ken Thomas, SOS Wales Director, are the girls and officials of Whitland RFC and Welsh ladies rugby international Sioned Harries. Sioned held a masterclass for the girls that was enjoyed by all. Isuzu are wonderful sponsors of Welsh rugby and here they demonstrate their desire to promote welsh rugby at all levels including the grass roots of the game. Good luck girls in the future - you could not have a better example than Sioned to follow !

BT Volunteers Get Packing

This merry band of wonderful volunteers from British Telecom very kindly donated their valuable time to an invaluable SOS kit packing exercise at Stevenage recently. Led by Glyn Dove (centre in the back row) the boys attacked the unpacked kit with relish, much kit was packed, and a good time was had by all.  This really is the unglamorous part of kit collection but essential to correctly sort and box valuable rugby kit ready for despatch to one of our 20 recipient emerging rugby countries. We are so grateful for these wonderful guys giving up their time and to BT for allowing them to do so. Gluttons for punishment, another one is being planned in a few months time !

Great Feedback from Hungary

SOS Kit Aid CEO John Broadfoot recently received this encouraging letter from the Hungarian Rugby Union. Great to see how some of the kit we have collected is being put to such good use.

"Dear John,

A package has arrived two days ago, and I finally had the opportunity to look through the boxes! As usual, I found great stuff for our players! I am especially grateful for the pitch equipment, which is to be used at the U18 Central Eastern Development Cup. With your help, we are able to fulfil all security conditions in our tournaments.

 Thanks for the promotional items as well, which are great for rewarding the kids in our school rugby programme!

 We are grateful for the balls and shoes; many players will be happy to hit the pitch using them!

 The tackle suits will widen our possibilities in development of making rugby more secure.

 

Thank you a lot for all the equipment and clothes, Hungarian Rugby Union is grateful for your support!

 Best wishes,

Dénes Debreczeny

Üdvözlettel/Best regards,
