We are thrilled to share that we have been selected as Preloved Sports chosen Charity.  Preloved Sports aim is to give your Preloved Sports clothing, accessories, shoes, medals, and technology a new home, raising money for charity and reducing the impact on the environment.  

Here at TAL, we think this is a brilliant idea and would encourage you to support Preloved Sport, so whether you have Preloved items you no longer want, or you’ve just started your running/cycling journey or simply looking for a bargain, you can use Preloved Sports to help reduce waste whilst at the same time supporting Talking about Loss.

Preloved Sports has been setup in memory of Michael Hill’s dad, who lost his battle to leukaemia in May 2019.  Michael shared “My dad had a heart of gold and always had a passion to help others. By setting up Preloved Sports, we are able to help others by offering help and support to those who are new to running / cycling, helping reduce the environment impact unnecessary waste creates and raising money for a charity who help support people through the grieving process.”

Raising money for charity and reducing the impact on the environment is such a fantastic thing to do.  Have a look at their website to find out more on how to donate items or maybe even treat yourself to something!

Could you be a Preloved partner?

Preloved Sports are looking for individuals, local businesses and community hubs around North Yorkshire to become Preloved partners.

As a Preloved partner, you will act as a donation station / drop-off point so those who live close to you would drop off their Preloved Sports items.  You would then store items until Proved Sport are able to collect them from you.
