Imps help Kit Out The Nation

22 September 2021

The Imps have donated old first-team kit to the Kit Out The Nation campaign being run by BBC Radio Lincolnshire - and fans can still drop off their unwanted sportswear or equipment at the LNER Stadium.

First-team kit manager Terry Bourne handed over boots, training gear and match issue kit which is no longer required by the club after being inspired by the campaign.

He said: “This can be distributed to people who are not fortunate enough to be able to buy them, the kit and boots still have plenty of life in them so people can get out there and use them.

“The country has been through hard times and to kit out the nation with any sporting kit is a great initiative, hopefully some of this kit will go to children around the country who may become Lincoln fans.”

Fans who have kit they wish to donate to the campaign can drop off via the Lincoln City Foundation offices at the LNER Stadium.

Recent research has found that thousands of children are not getting the recommended 60 minutes of daily activity a day. 

In July a DCMS select committee report- with data from Sport England, said 100,000 fewer children met the recommended level of activity in 2020 than in 2019.

The situation has been compounded by the pandemic, access to facilities and people not being able to afford the kit.

The Kit Out The Nation campaign runs until October 16. For more information on how to donate old items at the LNER Stadium see the Lincoln City Foundation website.
