NEWS: SBitC hold a kit amnesty at Saturday's Shrewsbury fixture in the name of Jimmy Hill

11 August 2016

Support the SBitC's pledge to continue the Sky Blue legacy, orchestrated by the late Jimmy Hill...

Sky Blues in the Community are holding a kit amnesty at Coventry City’s first home league game of the season against Shrewsbury this Saturday.

The SBitC team will be collecting donations of old team kits next to the Jimmy Hill statue from 2-3pm. Full kits, team shirts and football boots that are still in good condition are all welcome! 

All kit and equipment will be donated to a group or individual through our charitable partners, including Coventry City Council social services.

The appeal is part of the Jimmy Hill Legacy Fund. The Legendary City Manager and Chairman passed away in December 2015 after an incredible career in football, which saw him lead the Sky Blues from the Third Division to the First Division.

CCFC and SBitC want to create an ongoing legacy to Jimmy in the Coventry and Warwickshire area, as we continue to pay tribute to the ‘Sky Blues Revolution’. 

The legacy fund will help support projects for children, young people and adults with disabilities, provide opportunities for young people, support the Sky Blues Family Zone and provide vital funds through grants to various groups and organisations.
The Fund is supported by both Bryony Hill, Jimmy’s widower, and Jamie Hill, Jimmy’s son, and will seek to raise funds through donations from Sky Blue supporters and the business community as well as events such as Saturday.
