Improving your wellbeing just got more affordable thanks to Everyday Active, a campaign to encourage physical activity which Heart of Kent Hospice has teamed up with.
If you were thinking you would like to be a bit more active but the cost of the kit and equipment was putting you off, the Hospice’s Aylesford superstore now has affordable kit and equipment to help you move more and be healthier. Items of kit so far donated include exercise bikes, dumbbells and fitness clothing from t-shirts, trainers to walking boots.
If you would like to donate kit or equipment - any piece of equipment of any size will be gratefully received at any of the 14 Heart of Kent Hospice shops – your closest can be found here.
Everyday Active is a campaign from the Kent and Medway Active Partnership – Kent Sport. It doesn’t matter if you’re totally new to being active or you’re just looking for a new challenge – there’s something for everyone.

Mark Mickelburgh, Head of Retail said: “This brilliant initiative and partnership will enable people to access both sports equipment and kit at a low cost. It will also enable people to donate items of active clothing and equipment which they no longer need or use, to one of our 14 charity shops. By taking part in the Everyday Active campaign people can support Heart of Kent Hospice and get a bit more active in an affordable way.”
Dick Fedorcio, Chair of the Kent and Medway Active Partnership, said: “Our aim is to get more people across Kent and Medway to be more active, more often, to enjoy healthy lives. This partnership will enable all of Kent’s communities to have access to equipment enabling them to be more active and improve their wellbeing. This is especially important in a time when we know people have struggled financially.”
