Kit out the Nation campaign launches

September 2nd 2021
FGR Community

As we all emerge from the Coronavirus pandemic, the BBC’s local radio stations across England are coming together to help children and families.

In a recent report, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee published data from Sport England which showed 100,000 fewer children met the recommended level of activity in 2020 than in 2019 and it was "of significant concern".

One issue is around access to sport and exercise because of the affordability of kit, and the situation has been compounded by the pandemic.

Also, good condition equipment, that would otherwise go to landfill or simply remain in cupboards, could get an extended life and help a young person get active.

We want to do our bit to help. From Saturday 4th September until Saturday 2nd October we are aiming to get kit and sports equipment to the schools and clubs where a young person may use it. Together, we hope to help get the nation's young people more active.
