Kit Drop & Swap returns for 2023
13 October 2023
Gloucestershire Cricket is excited to announce the return of our hugely successful Kit Drop & Swap event for 2023.
A chance to donate any unwanted kit to support clubs and players throughout Bristol, the Kit Drop will take place from Monday 20th to Friday 24th November at the home of Gloucestershire Cricket, Seat Unique Stadium.
The swap event will then take place on Saturday 25th November between 9am and 12pm in the Jessop Room on the ground floor of the Bristol Pavilion at the Seat Unique Stadium.
Returning for a third year, the Club’s Kit drop & Swap was a huge hit in 2022 with hundreds of items of unwanted sports clothing, equipment and shoes donated to go to a new home. As the cost of living crisis continues to bite, the initiative aims to help those not in a position to purchase new equipment to obtain new kit for the 2024 season.
Pete Lamb, Head of Community at Gloucestershire Cricket, said: “Kit Drop & Swap has gone from strength to strength over the last couple of years, making a real difference to people’s lives and helping to break down the financial barriers that often prevent young people from fully accessing cricket.
“We’d like to encourage anyone who does have unwanted kit, from all sports, to drop it in to the us at the Seat Unique Stadium to help us recycle and reuse as much good quality equipment as possible.”
Gloucestershire Cricket's talent pathway teams and local clubs in Bristol and Gloucestershire will be invited to participate in the event by encouraging all players to donate their old kit and equipment.
Kit Drop & Swap is open and available to everyone of all ages, acting as an opportunity to swap old kit and get something ‘new’. It is a free event but there will be an opportunity to make a charitable donation to the GCT on the day for those who wish to and are able.
To donate kits, clothing and sports equipment (from any sport) to a new home, please drop them at the Seat Unique Stadium on any of the below dates.
Donations: Club Reception
When: Monday 20st – Friday 24th November
Time: 9am – 5pm
