Donate Old Kit To Support NCS Drive

3 March 2015

Supporters are being asked to donate any old items of football kit to a new drive being led by Hartlepool United Community Sports Foundation and the National Citizen Service (NCS).

On Saturday 7th March, NCS graduates will join HUCSF staff in collecting items of football kit to donate to schools across Africa. 

You can drop your items to the group who will be situated near to the Victoria Lounge and Club Shop in the car park at Victoria Park before the Burton Albion game on Saturday.

They are accepting shirts, shorts, socks, boots, shinpads and trainers; these do not have to be Hartlepool United merchandise as any items will be greatly appreciated. 

Once the kit arrives at its destination, photographs will be provided so that fans who donate might even see their old shirt after its long journey to Africa.

National Citizen Service (NCS) is a once-in-a-lifetime experience open to all 15-17 year olds across England. 

Hartlepool United Community Sports Foundation have successfully delivered four NCS programmes so far and engaged over 75 young people from Hartlepool and the surrounding areas. 

Each year NCS have an annual celebration of social action whereby every young person involved in NCS is given the opportunity to take part in a single day of social action in order to begin to change the world. 

NCS Social Action Day was piloted in 2014 and on one single day, over 500 volunteer hours of social action took place; the aim this year is to increase this and have every NCS delivery partner taking part with their graduates.

And Saturday will see HUCSF and NCS join together for their social action project at The Vic so make sure you dig out that old shirt and bring it along to donate.
