City in the Community has donated over 2,000 pieces of kit to a range of charitable causes from all over the world, including the National Football Museum’s ‘Kit Amnesty’ campaign.
A total of 12 projects have been support by the donation this summer, which was made possible by kit staff from MCFC’s first and EDS teams.
Projects include: MCFC Supporters Branch in Sierra Leone, ‘HIS Church’ in Liberia, ‘DC Scores’ in Washington DC and ‘Mustard Tree’ in Manchester.
The National Football Museum’s ‘Kit Amnesty’ campaign received over 320 pieces of kit from CITC last week, in a surprise delivery. The kits will form part of a colourful display in the museum before being sent to ‘KitAid’, who will share the items to underprivileged children and adults across 40 countries.
Last year’s campaign at the Museum saw City fans donate more shirts than any other supporters.
Alex Williams, City in the Community Ambassador, said: "We’re proud to have put last season’s kit to such worthy causes and would like to thank everyone at the Club for all their help.
"Projects such as ‘KitAid’ do a great deal to help communities all over the world through the power of sport and we would encourage all MCFC fans to donate any of their unwanted kits – it’s not too late to get involved!"
Director of National Football Museum Kevin Moore, said: "It’s fantastic to be working with the charity Kit Aid for this year’s kit amnesty and to see the campaign go from strength to strength.
"City in the Community’s donation reflects the generosity of local clubs and fans, who go out of their way to bring along their old kit to help children and adults all over the world."
The National Football Kit Amnesty will run until Monday 31 August. For more information, visit: www.nationalfootballmuseum.com
