Kit Aid Collections
Sharing the passion for football across the world since 1998
Finding a home for your unwanted football kit in Africa and beyond
KitAid is a charity set up by one of our employees, Derrick Williams MBE, who visited Tanzania on a Water Aid supporters’ trip in 1998. Derrick, being a mad footie fan, was amazed at the reception he received from children and adults in remote villages just because he wearing his favourite football shirt (Watford, Chesham Utd, Liverpool FC to name a few).
After two weeks in Tanzania, a flame was lit in Derrick’s heart and he was on a mission to provide kit and equipment to the bare-footed children playing with footballs made of tied string and plastic bags. Fifteen years on, KitAid has Graham Taylor OBE as its Patron, lots of volunteers and to date we’ve sent out 200,000 kits to children and adults in 40 different countries across the world.
