Thank You 2020

The new Thank You certificates are now back from our printers and ready to hand out to everyone who supports KitAid in 2020. They look great and even better when framed and hanging with pride on a clubhouse or school wall. To become a member of this exclusive club simply donate a decent amount of […]

In memory of Tikhale and Karen (MTSRIP)

It was with great sadness that we recently learned of the passing of 15 year old Tikhale Nalolo, a FOMO netball player, and of Karen Childs, a KitAid supporter. We sponsored the trophies for a special memorial tournament organised by FOMO Committee members in honour of Tikhale. Karen was also remembered at the event, which […]

World Cup Final Support

We would like to say a massive thank you to Phil Sharpe for a fantastic donation of full referee kits for our friends from FOMO Malawi. The referees often get overlooked and it is hard to provide them with proper kit. Phil has gone above and beyond by providing referee shirts, shorts and socks as […]

Ricky Road Run Sunday 27 October 2019

Calling all (fit) runners to enter the scenic 10 Mile Ricky Road Run, through the beautiful lanes of Chorleywood, Little Chalfont and Rickmansworth. This event is close to our hearts as it was co-founded in 1984 by KitAid’s founder, Derrick Williams MBE. We also receive a donation every year from the run which is key […]

KitAid Storage Help Needed

In the last fortnight KitAid has unfortunately lost access to two of its key storage facilities. This is a significant problem for us as it limits the amount of kit we are able to collect and store. We are currently having to turn donations away, which we really struggle with, knowing the demand for kit […]
