Northampton Saints Foundation are delighted to be part of the BBC’s Make a Difference Kit Out the Nation Campaign.
The campaign runs for a month, and is aimed at taking in and distributing unwanted, good condition sports kit and getting it to children and teenagers who need it at a time when the pandemic has seen levels of exercise among young people plummet.
As a charity who uses the values of Northampton RFC and the power of sport to Inspire, Support and Educate young people and their communities, the Foundation are working with the BBC Northampton to be a collection point for donations.
From Saturday 4 September until Saturday 2 October donations can be dropped off to a branded bin within the Franklin’s Gardens shop. Donations can include clean kit in good condition such as shorts, tracksuit bottoms, hoodies and t-shirts plus sports equipment like tennis racquets, sports boots or balls. Your donations will make a huge difference to a young person.
Franklin’s Gardens store opening times
Thursdays - 12:00 - 17:00
Fridays - 12:00 - 17:00
Saturdays - 10:00 - 15:00

“It is important to come together to support children and families after a tough year due to Covid-19. We wanted to do our bit to help and together, with other charities and companies, we hope to get the nation’s young people more active and give a new life to equipment and kit which otherwise would have gone to landfill”.Catherine Deans, Managing Director
