From September 2018 Kennards Self Storage are proudly supporting Fair Game Australia a grass-roots not-for-profit organisation that inspires healthy communities through donating recycled sports equipment, using it as a tool to deliver health and fitness education programs. Fair Game Australia believes that all Australians should have access to the benefits of healthy choices aiming to create an equitable, healthier & sustainable Australia.
KSS Hoxton Park provide space for the Sydney Hub, storing sports equipment before it can be placed with communities and programs who have asked for their services. The Sydney hub formed in 2015 and has been growing ever since. It receives, collects and donates sports equipment to community groups and programs across Sydney and regional NSW. Fair Game Sydney also runs health and fitness education programs at Redfern Jarjum College and partners with the Benevolent Society and Mission Australia to assist the community programs Chill, Chat, Learn and IMatter at Claymore Community Centre.

Recently two Sydney volunteers travelled to WA to take part in a rural immersion trip to remote communities in the Pilbara region. They joined fellow Perth based Fair Gamers in delivering recycled sports equipment to communities and running sport and health education activities with local children.
“The time I spent in the Pilbara region of Western Australia was an incredibly humbling and inspiring experience. The Fair Game team and I were so grateful to have been given the opportunity to make a small difference in some of these smaller, under-serviced, rural and remote communities. I came back to Sydney covered in a thin layer of Australian red soil and it has truly left a significant mark on me. I cannot wait to get back out there and do it all over again!” Doan
