Lord’s Taverners Sports Kit Recycling

Friday 20th May 2022

Kent Cricket are pleased to have two collection points, one at each of our county grounds, for the Lord’s Taverners Sports Kit Recycling programme, details below.

What is sports kit recycling?

Many young people in the UK and abroad find it hard to access sport, with one of the main barriers being a simple lack of access to the right kit and equipment.

The Lord’s Taverners sports kit recycling programme collects usable kit from across the UK through a network of local ‘collection hubs’.

The kit is then sorted and redistributed to partner organisations within the UK and around the world, who can put it to great use in their communities.

How does it help young people?

The benefits of playing cricket and other sports are numerous. Having the correct kit gives more young people the opportunity to play team sport and develop crucial life skills such as teamwork, communication and confidence, alongside improving their overall health and wellbeing.

In recent years, The Lord’s Taverners have sent large amounts of kit to projects in India, Germany, Antigua, Brazil, Romania, Rwanda, Uganda, The Gambia, Mexico and across the UK.

Want to donate your unwanted kit?

Please contact the collection points in advance of your visit.
