Join the Sixways Kit Amnesty this Sunday at Sixways Stadium
Worcester Warriors and official club sponsor and community partner npower are proud to support the Sixways Kit Amnesty which will take place on derby day when we entertain Gloucester Rugby on Sunday, March 22 (kick-off 3pm).
We have teamed up with SOS/iRB Kit Aid to launch the first ever Sixways Kit Amnesty to support growing efforts of the international rugby charity.
Supporters are now invited to bring as many items of rugby kit and clothing - including boots - to Sixways Stadium on match day and then peg them onto one of the special npower washing lines available on site.
The kit will then be donated to developing rugby nations who share the same love of the game as we do.
Tom Ryder, Marketing & Community Manager at Warriors, said: "It is a really exciting project for us that will give fans an opportunity to clear out their wardrobes and donate their olds shirts to a great cause.
"Once again npower have stepped up the challenge of supporting a Warriors community partnership project. Now we want fans to take up the challenge and bring an old shirt, peg it on the line and then enjoy a big derby day atmosphere with the Warriors."
Carol Hart, Community Involvement Manager at npower added "The first ever Sixways Kit Amnesty is a fantastic way of developing junior rugby in less fortunate countries around the world. We are very proud to be supporting the event which will help make a real difference to thousands of children by providing sporting kit to enable them to play rugby."
SOS/iRB Kit Aid is about involvement, inclusivity, social integration, discipline and respect. Where people from all walks of life with a passion for rugby, can come together and participate, to make a difference to less advantaged young children's lives around the world and of course help the environment at the same time.
John Broadfoot from SOS/iRB Kit Aid said: "We hope all supporters will dig into their wardrobes, lofts and garages, and bring along all the shirts and boots that they no longer have use for.
"SOS, with the kind help of Worcester Warriors and npower, will send that very same kit to youngsters in poorer nations around the world and soon supporters will see photos of their kit being used to good effect."
Do something great on derby day - give your old kit for charity!
