Kickstart’s Keep Fit
Last week we launched our brand new initiative which offers free P.E equipment bags to families who need it most during these troubling times.
Each bag has a value of £20 and is packed full of sporting equipment to help keep children active during lockdown. There are 5 different bag types, Football, Netball, Rugby, Tennis and Basketball. Within each designated sports bag there is a larger piece of equipment from that sport, accompanied by; a set of cones, bean bags, other balls, a skipping rope, and a stress ball as a small aid and reminder to look after children’s mental health during this pandemic.
It was important for us to cover as many different sports whilst still enabling us to keep the bags enticing for boys and girls of all ages. The equipment arrives in a draw string bag which can then be used to store the equipment at home, transport it, or even can be used when children are back at school as their new P.E. bag.
We have different networks in place to distribute the bags all over Kent and beyond. The primary schools that we currently work with to deliver P.E. lessons were our first points of contact and they have helped us get the kit bags out to different families.
We are incredibly excited to grow this initiative and although we already have 150 bags out, we are hoping to get many more into the community.
Whilst our work delivering P.E. lessons and school clubs isn’t currently able to go ahead we will soon be releasing online P.E. based lessons and fun new style fitness sessions to give children new and exciting games and activities to play with the equipment that is being sent out. We feel that many children rely on our sessions to stay fit and healthy so free online lessons are the next best thing.
We are going to be reaching out to people and businesses far and wide to help with sponsorship opportunities that we have created to help fund our Kickstart’s Keep Fit initiative. So if you or any businesses you know of would like to sponsor any number of new bags then please get in touch. Each sponsor will receive a full single colour print on the front of each bag, have their promotional items inside the bag and will be featured in ongoing promotions and adverts.
For more information on how to receive a bag, or to enquire about sponsoring the P.E. bags please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us on our social media pages (@KickstartSportsUK)
With special thanks to Will from Will Barnes Limited, a Sittingbourne based driving and recruitment company. Our first 100 bags were kindly sponsored by Will Barnes Limited. Not only did they sponsor the bags, they offered warehouse space to help pack the bags and will be providing ongoing delivery services for this initiative.
