GFORCE are proud to support - SOS Kit aid

Added 27 Feb 2017 by GFORCE

At GFORCE teamwear, we are proud to support a number of different charities both in the UK and abroad. Here, in our latest guest blog, John Broadfoot from SOS Kit aid, reflects on the work of his project and how corporate support from brands like GFORCE has really made a difference.

John said: “SOS Kit Aid, supported by World Rugby, has been in operation for over 15 years and in that time has sent enough recycled used/new UK donated rugby kit for over a quarter of a million disadvantaged youngsters in 43 emerging rugby nations around the world. SOS has sent over £5million pounds worth of quality kit and saved over 250 tonnes of quality used/new rugby kit from wastefully being thrown into scarce UK landfill sites. Everyone is a winner - the youngsters who receive the kit, the UK landfill sites that don't receive the kit and the world wide rugby family benefits by helping each other.

“This has all been possible thanks to wonderful kit donators like Gary Lory from GFORCE, who has been incredibly kind in making regular kit donations to SOS Kit Aid over the years. Thanks to GFORCE, thousands of disadvantaged youngsters can now play rugby - benefitting their health, their confidence, their self-esteem, their team building skills, their enjoyment of life and importantly making friends for life within the worldwide rugby family.

“By donating quality GFORCE kit to SOS Kit Aid, GFORCE is also helping to reduce global warming because their donated kit replaces new kit that would have to be manufactured in its place to help these disadvantaged youngsters. SOS is proud to have won three prestigious environmental awards, as we have saved over 1,000 tonnes of harmful CO2 emissions in our 15 years of operation.

“GFORCE can take credit for these environmental awards too. Please look at the website www.soskitaid.com for more details and thank you again Gary and all at GFORCE for helping make a real difference to disadvantaged youngster’s lives around the world."
