REPLAY started in February 2017, founded by The McLean family (Millie, Lucy, Mum & Dad) in Palmerston North. Upon having a clean out at home one weekend a corner of the garage was found to be accruing a steady supply of out-grown, pre-loved, un used sports gear.
Rather than hang onto the gear, it was decided to reach other Kiwi kids and families who may need a hand with accessing sports equipment to help their child be more involved with their sport. Mum Denise, with a marketing background, made a few phone calls, set up a website and before too long 48 bundles of gear were making their way to some local active Kiwi kids. This was the start of REPLAY.
Now nearly 3 years later (February 2020), over 8000 pieces of sports equipment consisting of balls, boots, bats, sticks, shin pads and sneakers have been received and redistributed within the Manawatu and more recently the Whanganui & Marton communities. We still have the same goal – reaching Kiwi kids and families with gear, help keeping kids active and helping the environment along the way too.
