Ok I'm lardy and I know I am a long way getting back into some of my old kit. Most of it is more than OK.
I had been holding on but have decided that I'd rather buy new shiny pretty kit as a well done for losing the weight (kit is so much nicer now than the old blue black grey offerings!) so my question is this.

Do I just stick it in the clothes bank or a charity shop or is there a charity for used sports kit?

TIA!

Offer it free or for a small donation to charity on Fetch :) I've acquired a few garments that way.

Reminds me that I need to have a sort out of my kit. I had a surplus of race t-shirts a while ago so gave some to my school's PE teacher. She uses them for when kids have forgotten to bring in kit. It did seem funny to see one of them running round in my Silverstone 10k t-shirt.

I like Vrap's idea.

I had too much kit, but VP relieved me of the vests and t-shirts that were too big for me and I let Kevin and Fellmouse plunder the stuff that fitted me and take what they wanted.

We have this shop in Bedford(there are some in other towns). Set up by a chap who lives down the road. Originally a basketball coach he wanted to make sure young people could get hold of the kit they needed.
