JADTEU Donate to KitAid

 

Personnel from The Joint Air Delivery Test and Evaluation Unit will be donating over 130 football shirts to underprivileged children in West Africa.

The Joint Air Delivery Test and Evaluation Unit (JADTEU), who are based at RAF Brize Norton, will hand over the kits on Thursday 4th January 2018 to the charity KitAid after kicking off the campaign with a 6-a-side Football Tournament back in October 2017 to raise awareness for the collection.

The charity ‘KitAid’ recycles, once loved, football kit and distributes it to underprivileged children and adults in some of the world's poorest countries. The size of the donation has been made possible by generous donations from personnel at JADTEU and Carterton Town Football Club.

Flying Officer Walker said, “I have been amazed at the level of generosity of my colleagues at JADTEU who have sourced kits, boots and shin pads from not only their own homes, but from friends and family as well. The donation of 4 full kits from Carterton Town Football Club, made possible by the Club Chairman Flight Sergeant Bugsy Felstead, is fantastic and shows the great relationship we have with the local community at Brize Norton.”

Mister John Maxwell, the Regional Coordinator for KitAid, said, “I am extremely grateful for the help from RAF Brize Norton. I personally take the kit to West Africa and it is very much appreciated; I still see the same kits being worn by children from my very first donation delivery over 7 years ago.”
