Midlands update 2013

The Midlands Region has gone from strength to strength over the last 12 months. We have made good use of our two storage facilities, provided free of charge by our good friends at Walkerpack in Northampton at DHL Supply Chain at Magna Park, Lutterworth that are frequently running at or near capacity. This has enabled us to stage three kit packing days in conjunction with volunteers from BT, who have generously given up their time to help us pack and despatch consignments of kit totalling some 9 tonnes to 12 emerging rugby nations in Europe and Africa.

Of course, we couldn't do this without the help of our donors who have provided us with a steady stream of both cricket and rugby kit throughout the year. We gratefully acknowledge recent donations from the Royal Grammar School Worcester, Worcester Warriors Rugby Club, King Edward Grammar School, Warwickshire County Cricket Club, Leamington Cricket Club, Dorridge Cricket Club, East Leake RFC and Potton RFC (who generously donated all their kit following the demise of their club).

Further contributions have come from kit suppliers Akuma Rugby and manufacturers Tejay Socks, while individual donations have been made by numerous people including a number of referees, John Wells, Graham Rowntree (Leicester and England rugby) and Neal Radford (former Worcestershire and England cricketer).

We thank you all for helping to make it possible for youngsters less fortunate than ourselves to play the sports we love. We were also pleased to receive the endorsement of David Duckham MBE, formerly of Coventry, England and the Lions who joins our other rugby legends as a supporter of the Kit Aid cause.
