my name is Reeco and along with Lindsay Fraser have started a project in the UK
called, Kits For Kenya. I would like to ask you, would you please consider
helping us, to help others, who are not as fortunate as we are. We are not
looking for your money, but we are desperately looking for old football
equipment that may no longer be needed e.g. Football Boots, Football Trainers,
All Sizes, Senior, Junior Full Team Kits & Individual Kits, Shin Pads,
Sweatshirts and Rain Jackets.
equipment maybe old to you, but think of the smile it will put on the face of a
child or young man in Kenya, I have a lump in my throat just thinking about it.
won’t go into how the bad the people of Miwani in Kenya have it, but we are all
millionaires compared to them.
Everybody needs hope and we hope to offer as much as we can.
Swansea and The Academy of Sport, Llandarcy are drop off points for all
equipment, so if you can help, please feel free to take the equipment there or
phone me. All
The Best. Reeco

What a wonderful morning I have had recently, not only did a Primary School in Swansea make a £ 50 Donation to Kits For Kenya, but I was also invited to the end of year assembly to receive the £ 50 donation and also a lot of football equipment, pictures to follow.
I would to thank Mr Casker, HeadTeacher, Mrs James, Mrs Evans, All & Staff and Children at Cwmrhydyceirw Primary School for their kindness and for their £ 50 donation and about 30 shirts and loads of new shorts.
would anyone consider sponsoring 15 plain red socks they cost £ 32.80

A Massive Thank You To TNT for kindly offering to do the first drop complimentary for future drops we would like to ask businesses would they consider helping us carry on the good work. A Massive Thank You To Anthony Melding @AMelding Former Club Secretary of Neath FC, for Kindly Donating 3 Adidas Kits.
The last action of Neath FC was to donate their last three kits, as
used in their final season, to a very worthy cause in Africa - www.kitsforkenya.co.uk.
One of the founders of www.kitsforkenya.co.uk is Welshman Reeco
Rees, who is a football coach based in Swansea, who has previously held
the position of Assistant Director of youth football at Swansea City
And the link to South Wales and the Welsh Premier League doesn't
end there because Sgorio analyst John Hartson helped launched the
appeal in Swansea.
Former club secretary Tony Melding explained; “After being
contacted by Reeco, I was only too pleased to agree to donate the three
playing kits we used last year to a very good cause and hopefully
contribute to brightening the lives of people who are not as fortunate
as ourselves in having football kits and equipment readily available.
“At a time of great sadness at the mismanagement of the Neath
FC, it is timely reminder that some people have to endure serious
hardship in their lives and we hope that this donation will go some way
to assist in their happiness and allow them to arrange the football
tournament that goes a long way to raising hope and peace within the
area of Miwani in Kenya.
"It is a good cause that people can easily contribute to as most
teams change their kits every season and any club wishing to get
involved can visit the website and make a difference by donating
Thank you very much To Martin Thomas, Briton Ferry & Llansawel AFC for their kind donation of two football kits.
is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out howthe strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could
have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually
in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood,
who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and
again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming,
but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who
spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows,
in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the
worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly,
so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls
who knew neither victory nor defeat."
