Grantham area team, Long Bennington R.H.P Colts, donates old kit to A3T Soccer Academy in Kenya
A football club has donated their old kit to a soccer academy in Kenya.
Gas Direct, a gas supplier based in Long Bennington, sponsors the kit of the R.H.P Colts under 10s team, with Gas Direct transport manager, Jay Peel, also being one of the team's coaches.
At the end of each season, the team donate their old kit to those who need them, with last seasons kit being donated to the A3T Soccer Academy in Kenya.
The team donated 13 kits from last season to Kits4Kids who distribute them to groups that need them, with the team's donation being allocated to the soccer academy.
Jay said: "It takes roughly around four weeks for the kits to get there from when we donated them.
"The team love it. Two of my sons play and when I showed them the pictures of the children in Africa their smiles were massive."
The RHP Colts team are keen to continue this tradition, and last year the group donated their football boots.
