Ever since we first kicked off back in 2005, we’ve had grassroots sport at the heart of everything we’ve done. If you follow us on social media then you will have seen our #SupportYourLocalClub campaign, supporting clubs of all sports through the COVID-19 crisis.

The positive impact that local sports clubs have on their communities is a big inspiration. Therefore, we’re always keen to link up with other businesses and organisations who share that passion.

That’s why we are delighted to announce that we’ve teamed up with GiveToLocal as their official national teamwear partner. Starting now, we’ll be working closely with them on their mission to provide grassroots sports clubs up and down the country with increased and sustained funding through the support of their own communities.

Who are GiveToLocal?

The team at GiveToLocal live, sleep, eat and breath grassroots sport. Through their own experiences they are only too aware of both its power and the challenges it faces. The organisation was set up as a way of bringing communities closer to their local clubs through a sponsorship and donation model, which benefits all of those involved. The ultimate aim of this is to help create a more sustainable future for grassroots sport.

GiveToLocal connects clubs to businesses who can sponsor them from as little as £8 a month. This gives clubs an additional source of income and businesses a simple and affordable way to engage with and support their community. Not only that, it provides businesses with access to more potential customers, in the form of the club’s donors.

Donors are individuals who would like to get behind their local club with a monthly donation of £3 or more. Donors can be people with pre-existing ties to the club or simply local people who see the value of community sport and want to give a helping hand. In return for their generosity, donors receive access to exclusive offers and discounts from the club’s sponsors.

How will Kitlocker.com help?

Initially we will be supporting GiveToLocal by providing Kitlocker.com vouchers for clubs during their #InspiredToGive campaign which launched today. (Go to www.fb.com/GiveToLocal to see if you can secure £1000 from the first draw!).

Following this we will be working closely to provide vouchers and discounts to clubs as they grow their own community on GiveToLocal. This will act as not only an additional motivation for clubs to boost their donorship numbers, but also as a way that they can access money off kit and equipment for their teams.

To be in with a chance of securing some of the Kitlocker prizes provided to GiveToLocal, keep your eyes peeled on their Facebook and Twitter

This is just the start and we’re very excited to see how we can develop this partnership into the future. We’re confident that both parties can work together to help contribute towards a brighter future for grassroots sport in the UK.
