We know how much good it can do us to get outdoors and get active. But sometimes the cost of kit can be a barrier to getting involved.
Parkrun said: “In Leeds a quarter of children are now living in poverty – an increase of 9% in a year.
“No one should ever feel excluded from running for not having the right kit or equipment. That’s why we are proud to support #TogetherForSport, a project by Zero Waste Leeds, with the mission of helping those who need it to play the sport they love by accessing great quality second-hand sports kit.
“On the 18th September, we’re calling for donations of good quality trainers and non event-specific running tops, shorts and leggings in children’s and young people’s sizes.
“There will be a collection point at junior parkruns across Leeds – come along and support this campaign.
“Please make sure that any donations are washed, clean and bagged before donating.”
