Regional Director for the South West, Ross Young, has been very in the past month, taking in numerous kit donations on behalf of LV= SOS Kit Aid.

Twenty six shirts and assorted tracksuit tops were collected from Midsomer Norton RFC, Bath. In the photo with Ross Young is Geoff Fuller of Midsomer Norton RFC after receiving the kit donation.

Taunton School
LV= SOS Kit Aid were also very lucky to benefit from a substantial amount of second hand cricket and rugby kit donated by Taunton School. This kit will be redistributed to disadvantaged children in many countries across the world, while helping to make a positive and tangible impact on young people's lives.

Housemaster and master in charge of cricket at Taunton School, Simon Hogg, who organised the collection, was delighted that the school could participate in such a worthwhile cause: "It is good to know that our efforts will help and encourage children through sport and we wish the charity well in all that it does. I hope that more families will be able to make a contribution in the future.’"

Ross Young added: "In the 10 years we have been collecting rugby and cricket kit from clubs and schools over £2million worth has been redistributed. We are so grateful to the staff, parents and children of Taunton School for their generosity.'"

Kit Donation
As well as collecting kit, LV= SOS Kit Aid has also been busy donating kit to worthy causes throughout the UK. Marland Special Needs School in Torrington, North Devon received kit from the kit recycling initiative which will give the disadvantaged Torrington youngsters the chance to partake in sporting activities.
