42T joins forces to support hockey charity
Cambridge South Hockey Club donates equipment and raises funds to support One Thousand Hockey Legs
One Thousand Hockey Legs is a non-profit organisation based in Delhi, India. It aims to give disadvantaged children an opportunity to learn about and play hockey.
The club is fundraising through quiz nights and member donations. With the support of its club sponsor 42 Technology, it is providing the charity with sticks and equipment.
Two sets of new playing shirts, printed by club kit supplier Gilmour Sports, are also being sent to India.
More about this initiative
The club’s link with the charity started when Bhavdeep Virdi, a player in the Men’s 1st XI, visited the One Thousand Hockey Legs programme.
He was inspired by the charity’s work which is now running hockey teams in 80 schools across 5 cities in India. He then encouraged his Cambridge club mates to get involved in supporting the organisation.
“Cambridge South is delighted to be helping children in India to enjoy and play hockey. These children often have parents who work in low paid jobs with little money for sport. One Thousand Hockey Legs can step in to help give their children a positive focus.”
42 Technology is already sponsoring the recently announced new junior section at Cambridge South and we are pleased to extend our support to young hockey players in India too.
