Hy-Pro has been lending its support to charity In Kind Direct, donating ten pallets of sports toys and outdoor equipment to the value of over £8,000 between March and October this year.

Founded in 1996 by the Prince of Wales, In Kind Direct redistributes surplus goods from manufacturers and retailers to UK charities working at home and abroad.

Hy-Pro has donated items including football equipment, scooters, skateboards, toys and games.

One of the charities benefitting is the Kids' City Foundation, which focuses on schools in the deprived communities of Lambeth, Wandsworth and Merton in London. It provides recreational and educational activities out of school hours and in school holidays.

Further afield, Hy-Pro has also donated football equipment, scooters and skateboards to The Crystal Clear Charity Aid Foundation, which promotes the well being of citizens in Sierra Leone, West Africa.
