Kit Recycling Scheme
Herefordshire Cricket Ltd are part of the Lords Taverner's (LT) Kit Recycling Scheme.
For 2024 we need your unwanted Cricket Equipment
Last year LT gathered donations from across the UK via hubs, like HCL and from other sources and organisations, and together they have helped submit donations totalling 17.5 tonnes during 2022/23. This is an increase of 30% over the previous year.
Alongside the programme’s aim of collecting and redistributing useful cricket kit, they have also kept records of the impact on the environment, down to each county and in some areas, by organisation. Through their collaboration with the University of the Creative Arts they hope to develop an environmental impact calculator to monitor progress and improve processes.
During the past year they have fulfilled 38 donations, which was evenly split between the UK and overseas. They shipped out just over 12 tonnes of donations, totalling just over 37 thousand items. In the UK they sent donations to cricket clubs, colleges, and refugee support organisations to further introduce young people into the game. As for overseas, they donated both clothing and equipment to 19 organisations around the world, including Kenya, Zambia, Ghana, Nigeria, Zanzibar, Rwanda, Turkey, Pakistan, and Brazil. These organisations again required infrastructure for their young people development programs, with over half of them requesting equipment for young women.
This coming year they are concentrating on replenishing their stock levels of cricket equipment, so they can continue to support young people from developing cricket nations. Please contact Kirsty Sockett for information on how you can donate.
