Dorrigo Highlanders FC Donate Kits To African Kids

November 14th, 2016

After a much-needed clear out of the Dorrigo Highlanders Football Club storeroom, two boxes of soccer shirts are on their way to Kit Aid in Canberra, destined for their partner charities in Africa.

Club President Peter Smith said club members were thrilled to be contributing to this important initiative, which sees Kit Aid distributing old and new football kits, shirts, shorts, boots and socks to less fortunate areas around the world.

“We have a range of old team shirts that we have replaced in recent years, but that are still in quite good condition,” Peter said.

“It’s great that these shirts will get a new lease on life, and bring joy to footballers in another country, instead of adding to landfill.

“Dorrigo Highlanders Football Club challenges other clubs in the North Coast Football zone to get behind this charity, or others like it, and send their excess football equipment to communities where it can be used,” Peter said.

Anyone who would like to support Kit Aid can find them on Facebook, and donate to the shipping costs for their latest container of football goods.
