The Rochester Sporting Equipment Drive has now closed. The team at Sports Focus would like to thank everyone for their kind donations. You can read more about the drive here.

Help the Rochester community by donating new or used sporting equipment to support kids to keep active during the school holidays.


Sports Focus has been supporting the Rochester community to return to sport after the devastating floods in October 2022. To support children and young people to keep active over the Christmas and school holiday period, Sports Focus are asking the community to donate new or used sporting equipment.


Items that would be appreciated:

  • Footballs
  • Soccer balls
  • Netballs
  • Cricket bats and balls
  • Down balls
  • Tennis balls and rackets
  • Frisbees
  • Skipping ropes
  • Bike helmets
  • Kids bikes/scooters/skateboards


Sporting equipment can be dropped off at two locations in Bendigo:

  • Sports Focus Office, 14 Nolan Street, Bendigo
  • SportsPower, 342 Hargreaves Street, Bendigo


Equipment can be dropped off at both locations until 21st December. Your support and generosity is greatly appreciated. Let’s help bring a smile to some young faces!
