Boots for Africa Appeal

The UniBond league along with the member clubs are supporting the Boots for Africa Appeal.

The appeal can be helped by FC United supporters bringing any unwanted boots to the home game against Ashton United on Wednesday 21st April 2010.

The collection point will be at the membership stall just outside the megacabin from 6pm until 7:30pm.

About Boots for Africa

Boots for Africa provides opportunities for children and communities to have fun. It was on the back streets of a South African township where Sheffield FC Chairman Richard Tims dreamed of doing something to help change the face of football for those living in Africa.

Seeing children playing the game in their bare feet on rubble strewn pavements left Richard asking what can be done to help. It was obvious to him those kicking a ball to each other shared the same passion and love millions of more fortunate fans around the globe have for the sport. This was where the ’Boots for Africa’ appeal was born.

Your support, however large or small, can make a real difference. Your donated boots will be the first ever pair worn by those children and will offer a generation of young people affected by poverty, poor health and lack of opportunity a new sense of hope, pride and ambition for themselves and for their country.
