“Wear a Sports Shirt Day” – Friday, 13th June 2014

Recommended Posts

All,

If you can support this by yourself, with friends, at work etc it would be very much appreciated and will benefit a great cause.

The Concept

The idea behind this is a simple one. As many people as possible wear a sports shirt on Friday, 13th June 2014 and, for doing so, donate either that shirt or any other item of sportswear or equipment to charity.

Who Can Take Part?

Anyone!

This is open to anyone of any age and whether at school, at work, unemployed or retired.

This is open to companies ranging from one-man bands to companies with locations throughout the UK.

It is open to offices, factories, bars, clubs, shops etc. For a business to support the event all that is needed is for the staff – be that one person or hundreds – to wear a sports shirt and donate something to the appeal.

Places like bars and clubs may also wish to involve their customers in donating.

It is open to schools and it would be great to see schoolchildren and their teachers enjoying a non-uniform sports shirt wearing day in support of the appeal.

Those who aren’t working can simply wear a sports shirt as they go about their normal daily activities. Not forgetting to donate of course!

In places where there is a dress code or uniform those wishing to take part will need the permission of their employer or school. Hopefully that will be forthcoming.

The Date

A Friday has been picked as many offices / places of work where there is a dress code allow staff to dress down on a Friday.

Friday, 13th June 2014 is the Friday before England’s opening World Cup fixture when, hopefully, the interest in sport will be at a high point.

Which Sports?

Any!

To take part just wear a shirt from your favourite sport or team. This can range from a Premiership football team to a local side, to the shirt you wear when out running or the shirt from your pub darts or euchre team.

The same goes for donations – any of the above or shorts, socks, boots, shinpads, the list is endless.

If in doubt donate!

Who Will Benefit?

The main charity who the donations will go to is KitAid.

KitAid is a registered charity which collects and sends no longer wanted sports kit (shirts, shorts, boots, gloves and shinpads in good condition) to children and adults who also love sport but live in some of the poorest parts of the World.

If you would like to know more about KitAid log on to www.kitaid.net or www.kitaid.blogspot.com

Registered Charity No. 113968

If the donation is something they cannot use then that will be passed to a similar charity Kits4causes – www.kits4causes.com.

All donations will be gratefully received and will go to some of the poorest people in the world.
