Hibernian Girls Academy player Lily Dickson has been collecting old Hibernian kit and donating it to Kid Aid.

We would like to thank all academy players and Hibernian Women staff for their kind donations.

KitAid is a charity set up by, Derrick Williams MBE, who visited Tanzania on a WaterAid supporters’ trip in 1998. Derrick, being a mad footie fan, was amazed at the reception he received from children and adults in remote villages just because he wearing his favourite football shirt (Watford, Chesham Utd, Liverpool FC to name a few).

After two weeks in Tanzania, a flame was lit in Derrick’s heart and he was on a mission to provide kit and equipment to the bare-footed children playing with footballs made of tied string and plastic bags. Twenty one years on, KitAid has lots of volunteers and to date they’ve sent out 700,000+ kits to children and adults in 55 different countries across the world.
