SOME old Devon Schools’ shirts and tracksuit bottoms are set to find a new lease of life after been donated to SOS Kit Aid.

Two sets of shirts and bottoms were found in a store room in Devonport Services’ soon-to-be demolished main stand.

The club were empting the old wooden stand ahead of it being taken down this month when they came across the kit that was been looked after by the late Graham Emond, who ran the county schools’ team.

Services contacted Devon RFU officials about the find and it was agreed that the Plymouth club could donate them to SOS Kit Aid, who recycle sports kit for the benefit of young people in the UK and overseas.

SOS Kit Aid have delivered kit to 27 different countries and can really make a difference to the lives of disadvantaged youngsters and adults.

The not-for-profit charity is supported by World Rugby, as well as many leading players, clubs and some of the top sports kit manufacturers.

SOS Kit Aid collector for Devon Phil Forgham travelled to Plymouth from Dartmouth to collect the kit from Devonport Services’ Mike Yeats.
