Story

Sharing the passion for football across the world.

OLSC Atlanta, OLSC Baltimore, OLSC Carlsbad, OLSC Derry, OLSC Donegal, OLSC Durban, OLSC France, OLSC Kenya, OLSC Madison,  OLSC Madrid, OLSC New Jersey, OLSC Rwanda,  OLSC San Francisco and OLSC Thessaloniki are proud to support Kit Aid as part of the LFC Foundation's This Means More Challenge 2021.

KitAid is a charity set up by, Derrick Williams MBE, who visited Tanzania on a WaterAid 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. Twenty one years on, KitAid has lots of volunteers and to date we’ve sent out 700,000+ kits to children and adults in 55 different countries across the world.

If you’d like to support the KitAid cause, the easiest way is to donate your unwanted football kit, in order for them to find it a new home.

Alternatively, if you don’t have any unwanted kit, but would still like to support Kit Aid, any donations will help them fund their annual costs as well as support other partnership charities where possible.
