We’ve all got old sports equipment stashed in
cupboards and garages; items that have either been neglected through disuse or
were replaced months and years before by newer versions.
Why then have we not put old rackets, clubs, bats,
balls and footwear out with the rubbish? Is it because this equipment is still
in good enough condition to be used? Would it not be a shame to just throw this
Let’s Play, in association with Builders and KayaFM,
is launching “Gear Up Our Kids”, a nationwide project to collect sports
equipment for children.
“Gear Up Our Kids” will run as a pre-Christmas drive
from now until the end of the school holidays. More than 100 bins will be
strategically placed at all Builders stores countrywide for the collection of second-hand sports equipment, clothing and footwear.
Everything collected will be distributed to needy
To be a part of this exciting project, ‘Play it
Forward’ and clean out those cupboards and donate your old sports equipment,
clothing and footwear to schools, communities, sports teams and organisations
unable to fund the purchase of new equipment.
Visit the following websites (www.letsplay.org www.builders.co.za) for further
details and look out for the “Let’s Play” bins at your nearest Builders store.
