WHO ARE KITAID AND WHAT DO THEY DO?
KitAid are a charity set up by Derrick Williams MBE, In 1998, after a trip to Tanzania with WaterAid Derrick saw first hand how an old football shirt could mean so much to the locals, so he set up KitAid to take anyone's old unwanted football kit and send it to some of the poorest countries in the world. This meant that local teams could play in full matching kits or more simply that an individual had a change of clothing.
The charity has gone from strength to strength since 1998 and has now sent over 800,000 items of kit to 55 countries around the world.
It's more than just a shirt!!!
