Hy-Pro makes an impact by donating to In Kind Direct

Between March and October 2012 Hy-Pro donated 10 pallets of toys and sports and outdoor equipment to In Kind Direct for redistribution to UK charities at home and abroad.

These goods have an estimated retail value of over £8,000.

In Kind Direct is a charity founded in 1996 by The Prince of Wales to provide an efficient and easy way for manufacturers and retailers to donate their products to good causes.

It redistributes surplus goods from manufacturers and retailers to UK charities working at home and abroad.

One of the charities benefitting from Hy-Pro’s products is the Kids’ City foundation.

Kids’ City focuses on schools in the deprived communities in Lambeth, Wandsworth and Merton.

It provides recreational and educational activities out of school hours and during school holidays.

1,400 children use Kids’ City’s services throughout the year.

The group has received children’s games and toys, including skates, skateboards and scooters, from by Hy-Pro.

Jackie Nunns, chief executive of Kids’ City, explains: “With In Kind Direct the quality of the goods is guaranteed – as an educational charity, we want to ensure we are giving children high quality play and learning opportunities.”

Hy-Pro’s donations also make an impact further afield.

The Crystal Clear Charity Aid Foundation promotes the well being of citizens in Sierra Leone, West Africa.

The charity started with a vision of bringing clean water and sanitation facilities to the country, but soon discovered the needs of the poor were much greater.

To support the charity’s aims, Hy-Pro has donated goods, including football equipment, scooters and skateboards, to the CCCAF charity.

Hy-Pro says it will continue to donate pallets of toys, sports and outdoor equipment to In Kind Direct in order to provide educational and high quality play opportunities to people who need it most.
