THG is the division of marcus evans that specializes in teaming corporate hospitality with premier international sporting events which is the largest corporate hospitality business in the world. Colin implemented and rolled out the Boots for Africa project in Holland.
One of the key moments for me came when we received feedback from Lesotho from Kick 4 Life's founding partner Steve Fleming he said...""K4TW provided Kick4Life with hundreds of football kits that are now being put to great use in Lesotho, giving the orphans and vulnerable children that we work with the chance to play football in top quality gear".
"Many of the children have nothing but the clothes they wear, so giving them a football shirt is a big deal, but it also acts as an incentive to get and stay involved with our activities which have the potential to change their lives for the long-term. Many thanks to KiTs for the World and to all the clubs who donated the kits - your efforts are hugely appreciated and are making a real difference".
By profession I am Logistics team leader and I am involved in the internal stock control, and managing transportation of in and outgoing goods and all related administration.
I love football and the opportunities it can bring for social development and improvement of circumstances as during the World Cup in Africa once again became clear. This made us eager to help and we started the charity 'KiTs for the World' an organization for raising football kits.
With my experience in logistics, I will mainly deal with transportation and administration. Help us to help and donate your football kits to the nearest collection point. Thank you!

In following his passion and strong belief in the power of sports to educate and raise awareness, Craig believes it is important to engage the minds and harts of youngsters at an early stage which ever part of the world you come from.
Having two young sons he says " The simple donation of my sons kits will be used to help motivate and inspirer children to follow educational projects and raise awareness of the life threatening pitfalls that face children in developing countries. The simple act of setting up a collection point at your football club or retail store can and will have a positive effect on the global social issues we all face. The charities KiTs for the World support use the kit donations do make a huge difference in communities which then in turn pass on the educational teachings to their children and so change takes place. KiTs for the World is a win-win situation for anyone who hate to lose"
