Donate old sports kit and equipment to Zambia 5050 appeal this week

Athletes and teams are being asked to donate their old sports kit and equipment to the Zambia 5050 appeal at the University of Bath this week.

Donations of balls, bibs, T-shirts, shorts, trainers, boots and larger equipment like netball posts and five-a-side goals are being accepted at the Team Bath Training & Development Office, outside the Founders Hall, from 11am to 2pm on Wednesday (May 31).

It is in support of the inspirational Volunteer Zambia project, which is now in its 12th year and sees students working in villages to provide sporting opportunities for youngsters, develop community sport programmes and mentor volunteers in coaching roles. They also deliver health awareness workshops.

Jake Samuel, James Morrissey, James Odagi and Jan Gosiewski are the latest University of Bath students who will be helping to enrich the lives of young Africans through the power of sport, leadership and education.

Donations must be clean and in good condition.
