At the start of February, on a bitterly cold snowy day, we launched our new partnership with West Herts College in Watford.

They run BTEC football courses and want to engage their sports students with KitAid.

They will also run a kit amnesty across all 7,000 students once the partnership is more developed.

I am pleased to link up with them as they are the biggest college close to our base in South West Hertfordshire and I look forward to sharing KitAid with their students.

This is a big opportunity for KitAid and we have been given a page in the commemorative programme to publicise our work, as well as collecting on the day outside Anfield.

We could end up with a lot of kit and we are receiving help from various people on the day and in advance to help prepare.

We are now receiving support from 4 of the top 7 Premier League clubs, which shows how KitAid has grown over recent years.


I heard last week that KitAid will be the chosen charity for a Walking Football Festival to be hosted later this year by Herts FA, Stevenage FC Foundation and Watford FC CSE Trust.  This is great news and thanks to all three of these great partners.

We should enter a team as even the motley crew from KitAid should be able to cope with football at walking pace!!

Look out for further details.
