ALEX Mitchell was one of a group of volunteers at the London Olympics so moved by the standard of the kit of some para-athletes that they decided to set up a charity, Kit Us Out, to help those athletes at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
"Kit should not be a barrier for people to do their very best within competition," Mr Mitchell said.
"We want to provide these para-athletes with the very best opportunity to hit personal bests, to win medals and to inspire the next generation of young para-athletes."
Team PNG are among the beneficiaries, receiving shoes, socks and three wheelchairs.
The wheelchairs are lighter, easier to fold and easier to use than the ones they brought to Glasgow.
Rosemary Mawe, the manager of PNG's para-squad, says the new chairs will make a big difference.
“Papua New Guinea has got rough terrain and in terms of mobility for our para athletes it has been very difficult,” Ms Mawe said.
“These wheelchairs will go a long way in assisting our athletes.”
She says she never expected to meet a charity in Glasgow which would donate equipment to her six-member squad.
"I didn't expect anything, and I'm overwhelmed and very grateful," she said.
"It has been very difficult, having access to various facilities, and the use of these wheelchairs will go a long way in assisting our athletes."
Papua New Guinea's Elias Larry made the final of the 100 metres para-sprint in Glasgow and says his new running shoes might have made all the difference.
"The old shoes were a bit broken, so I thank them for donating me a new pair of shoes, I was happy and comfortable to run my race," he said.
