Once again, this year we put the call out to our local football clubs, schools and community members to donate their no longer required football boots, balls, gloves and shin pads to great response. We even got two sets of old uniform kits donated by Turramurra United Football Club (which will be put to good use by the recipients)
In all we collected more than 180 pairs of boots!
These boots along with the uniform kits were recently distributed throughout Ghanda, Kenya, Nigeria and closer to home in outback communities of the Northern Territory.
The cost of distribution to these remote areas was covered by the Turramurra and Lindfield Community Bank® branches.
There were lots of happy faces when Their Beautiful Game distributed the boots, balls and kits from our collection to the various communities. Some of the children from Ghanda were playing soccer with one boot on and one worn-out sneaker until their new boots from our collection arrived!
A big thank you to everyone who donated boots, and especially to our local football clubs: North Turramurra FC, Lindfield FC, St Ives FC, West Pymble FC, Turramurra United Football Club and Kissing Point Football Club.
2020 Collection. If you or your child grow out of your boots and they are still in excellent condition, or require a new pair before the start of next year’s season, give them a wipe down, and hang onto
them as we will be collecting again in early 2020.
