We gather new & used sports gear, especially sports balls & boots to put back out into our community to local kids especially those who are unable to access or purchase their own. Items come to us via sporting code organisations and the greater community via collection bins around our regions
Every item we gratefully receive is recorded, checked over & given a bit of love (cleaned, balls pumped up). Via targeted recipient organisations in our community we reach children who need a sports ball to keep for their own use at home, in the weekends, during school holidays. We enclose a little note to say hi, a few fun technical tips and games, and a couple of other goodies to help use their ball. We also connect sneakers and football/rugby boots to children by request. Via the recipient organisations we engage with we also reach targeted schools to check in on their PE shed supply and top up any item that may be needed.
We also redistribute gear to reach children and families through local community organisations such as Sport Manawatu’s Active Families programme and “Welcoming Communities”.
Please get in touch if you would like to receive sports gear or a particular item.
