Kit Amnesty match – Dulwich Hamlet v Lowestoft Town

Spectators attending the Dulwich Hamlet v Lowestoft Town fixture at Champion Hill on 8th April 2017 are invited to bring donations of old sports shirts or any other sports related clothing (shorts, socks etc) or equipment (boots, pads, gloves etc) to the game in aid of charity.

Benefiting from the donations will be the African Bible University in Kampala, Uganda and the Thembalethu Foundation based in Zimbabwe.

Hamlet fans will recollect that a similar Kit Amnesty game was held last season supporting the same two great causes.

Hamlet supporter James Virgo is a friend Sean Kinsella who is a missionary and a professor at the African Bible University and Sean also passes kit out to teams in Uganda who are in need of kit.

The Thembalethu Foundation works with young people by bringing them together to play football and make them feel part of the community. In doing so they educate them in live choices as well as HIV/AIDS and try to show them the opportunities that life can offer.

This forms part of a project run by football supporter Julian Chenery who collects sports kit along with school uniforms for projects such as the two prime beneficiaries from the game. Both Julian & Kevin Marley of the Thembalethu Foundation will be at the game collecting the donations.

Any donations will be gratefully accepted and will make a real difference in some-one’s life. If in doubt donate!
