General Manager Andy Walsh says "Let’s make a big difference!"
The response to appeals to support children and adults who love football in some of the poorest parts of the world was overwhelming. Over 307 items of kit was collected during the matcch between the club and Marine last saturday - a response that would do a league club proud.
KitAid, which has Graham Taylor O.B.E. as its Patron, recycles no longer wanted football kit and sends it to less privileged children and adults across Africa, India and other developing countries.
KitAid founder Derrick Williams said: "This is a fantastic amount of kit and already the first box is on its way to Sierra Leone. Others will follow over the next few weeks.
"KitAid would like to say a massive thank you to FC United and to all of the fans who brought kit along. We are extremely pleased to be working with the club and this is one of the reasons we made them an Ambassador Club for KitAid earlier this year."
Details of further kit collection days will be advertised in due course.
