Donate your old Boots For Africa at LMRFF

August 15th, 2019

On Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 August, in conjunction with the SAP Gala Day held at Lake Macquarie Regional Football Facility, Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) will facilitate a Boots For Africa (B4A) drop-off zone where members of the local community are encouraged to donate their old football boots to help children in need in poverty stricken parts of Africa. 

B4A is a not-for-profit organisation that collects pre‐loved football boots and delivers them to children and young adults across Africa. The charity began in 2011 in Australia and was founded by Sarah Gardner with one of the main goals to make sport more accessible to young people in developing nations. 

Not only can those interested donate their old football boots for a worthy cause, but they can also give sports equipment such as shin pads, balls, witches hats head gears etc. to the people of Africa to help build communities and social understandings through the power of the game.

NNSWF encourages all members of the local football community, especially those attending the region’s SAP Gala Day. Clubs, coaches or individuals who may be interesting in learning more about B4A and how they can contribute can contact Sarah Gardner at b4a.australia@gmail.com or visit their website.
