Hockey Kit 4 the World
Following on from the successful bid to host the Women’s World Cup in 2018, England Hockey are working in partnership between The FIH, UK Sport, Ghana Hockey and the African Hockey Federation to deliver an exciting four year expansion plan for hockey in West Africa.
The biggest challenge to hockey development in West Africa is a huge lack of equipment. It is not uncommon for club players not to have their own sticks and teachers regularly have to deliver to classes of 40+ children with fewer than 10 useable sticks!
The expansion plan therefore includes the provision of hockey equipment and resources to schools and clubs across West Africa.
This is where we hope you can help.
With the support of Barrington Sports, England Hockey are asking the hockey family to donate any unwanted hockey sticks to players in Africa.
Are you treating yourself to a new stick this summer?
How many sticks do you have tucked away in the garage?
Has your child outgrown another stick?
Then, why not give your stick a new life and give someone else the opportunity to play?
Old Wulfrunians have teamed up with England Hockey and we have become a collection station for the Local Region.
All players are encouraged to bring your old sticks to the games or training sessions and hand them to your Captain or to a Member of the committee.
If you can’t make our games then contact us directly here via our website for more drop off points.
We will only be too pleased to accept Hockey Sticks and equipment from all Local Hockey Clubs
