Started in 2012 by founders Ian Styles and 2003 Rugby World Cup Winner Simon Shaw, In My Locker sells sports stars’ unwanted kit to sports fans across the world with proceeds going to the sports person’s charity of choice.
This season several of the England Rugby team chose to donate their personal kit to the stash seller with the Injured Players Foundation being nominated as their chosen charity of choice. In My Locker then sold the kit through their website (www.inmylocker.co.uk) raising an incredible £10,717.50 for the Injured Players Foundation this year!
Said Ian Styles “It has been fantastic to have had some of the England players kit to sell. It has been massively popular with customers from around the world getting involved. In our small way, we have been delighted to support the superb work that the Injured Players Foundation do”.
Said John Larkin, Charity and Fundraising Manager "we're delighted to recieve such a hugh donation from In My Locker which will go towards supporting catastrophically injured players in the rugby family. Thank you to In My Locker and the players who donated their kit in support of the IPF."
100% of the money raised will directly rugby players across England who sustain a catastrophic spinal cord or traumatic brain injury, and help prevent future injuries through research and education. To find out more and read real stories of some of the players the IPF help visit www.rfuipf.org.uk.
