THE MINI BIG LOVE BOOTBANK IS ON THE MOVE.
Ant and Dec. Torvill and Dean. MINI and parkrun. Yes, some partnerships just make sense...
Sharing our passion for community spirit, supporting others, and always looking on the bright side, parkrun are the perfect partners to help us with our Big Love goal to make everyone a little happier. And because community needs inclusivity, we’ve created the Big Love Bootbank.
SO WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?
We think running should be accessible for everyone. As well as how good it is for you physically, there’s nothing quite like those post-jog endorphins for making your mind happier. So we’ve introduced the MINI Big Love Bootbank – a place where people can donate sportswear. From trainers to tees, if it’s still got some miles in it, we’d love to receive it. The kit will then all be donated to Preloved Sports – an amazing organisation who are all about reducing clothes waste and giving everyone what they need to give running a go.
IT ALL STARTED IN SOUTHAMPTON.
We figured there’s nowhere better than a parkrun to find loads of lovely people that are keen to make a difference – and that just might have some sportswear going spare. So the Big Love Bootbank made its debut at the Southampton parkrun on Saturday 4 June, receiving over 300 donations on its very first outing. Nice work, parkrunners!
WHERE NEXT FOR THE BIG LOVE BOOTBANK?
After a winning start for the Big Love Bootbank, it’s back on the move and heading to more events across the country. It’ll be rocking up to Woodhouse Moor parkrun on Saturday 3 September, before hitting up Coventry parkrun on Saturday 10 September. So if you’re near either of these locations and want to get involved, we’d be so grateful for any donations. Find all the info and location details below.
THE BIG LOVE CONTINUES.
We’ll let you know when the Big Love Bootbank is on the move again, so you can see if it’s heading to a parkrun near you. And if you want to find out more about our Big Love mission and all the glorious things we're doing to make it happen, just head to the Big Love Hub.
