Haslingden Cricket Club are delighted to announce that we are to ‘Partner’ with the CriKIT Charity in order to recycle redundant cricket equipment and clothing from within our club and donate this to CriKIT.
CriKIT is a new, registered, non-profit making organisation set up by 17 year old Tom Robinson. Once CriKIT have received donations of kit and equipment from clubs such as ourselves, they will then arrange to ship it over to South Africa for the Kit to be distributed where best needed, most commonly in severly underprivileged South African Township areas. To make this possible CriKIT has formed a relationship with the Gary Kirsten Foundation who can distribute such kit where it is needed most. The kit will be given to individuals who need the equipment on a free issue basis with no money involved.
Kit collections at HCC will be arranged over the coming weeks and information will be distributed via email, twitter and in the club house regarding these collections.
If you would like to learn more about CriKIT, then please take a look at their website, a link for which is given below :
If any other Lancashire League club would also like to be involved in this project, then Tom can be contacted directly through the above website. Alternatively kit could be arranged to be dropped off at HCC on the specified collection dates which are as follows :
Friday 4 May, Friday 11 May, Friday 18 May & Friday 25 May – all from 6.30 to 8.00
