Leicester Tigers supporters and local rugby clubs have helped to donate old, un-used or unwanted kit to the Tigers community department to help support aspiring rugby players.
The club launched a new initiative asking the rugby community to help donate equipment, boots and clothing to young players who don’t have access to rugby training gear.
Fans answered the call at Tigers last home game against Bristol back in April donating kit in the designated Project Rugby Donation Point out on the plaza.
Local rugby club the Leicester Lions also helped support the campaign, as Joe Reynolds, who runs some of Tigers Project Rugby programmes around the region, went to collect kit from their training ground.
The kit is already being put to good use as pupils at Limehurst School will this week get to use boots donated by the programme, with the aim of encoruaging them to join a local club.
Supporters will be able to donate again at Tigers final home game of the 2018/19 season as they take on Bath Rugby in the Gallagher Premiership.
The Project Rugby Donation Point will be situated out on the Plaza next to the Tigers Foundation stand outside the Holland & Barrett Stand.
Simply visit the point and pop any kit or rugby gear in the cage. If you have something that will require collection, contact [email protected] and we’ll be able to arrange collection or delivery.
