TWC SUSTAINABILITY PROJECTS: RECYCLING SPORTS KIT

For the past 4 – 5 years the club has had a collection point for recycling kit organised by Andy Iga (cricket coach) on behalf of the Uganda Charity Trust, Uganda Cricket Association and Cricket without Boundaries. From bats & pads to shirts & shoes for any sport that can be used again goes to children in Africa giving them the kit to enjoy playing sport.

The Uganda Cricket Association have been recipients of our kit for which they are very grateful. Their Chief Executive Officer, Justine Ligyalingi, wrote, “On behalf of Uganda Cricket Association, I would like to extend our sincere gratitude for the donation made. The items are of very good quality and will obviously go a long way in boosting our development programs that we have earmarked this consignment for."

Our kit has also been donated to children in St Lucia, as you can see from the photo below, where TWC parents on school tours have donated their old club kit to the St Lucia children.
