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,

Dénes DEBRECZENY
