You Can Help

Boots for Africa receives NO government funding

We are totally reliant upon the generosity of schools, colleges, football clubs and businesses who collect sports equipment, run fundraising events or make cash donations.

We have many options available for you to get involved:



If you don’t want to get actively involved in collecting boots or organising a fundraising event but would like to support our campaign, you can make a donation.

Your help will enable us to continue to facilitate the collection and distribution of used sports boots to the children of Africa.

Your support, however large or small, will make a difference.

Why not hold a Boots For Africa fundraising event?

A charity football match, a sports quiz, a coffee morning and a raffle are just some of the many initiatives supporters have used to raise funds, which are essential to ensure we can continue to collect, pack, ship and distribute sports boots to disadvantaged children.

Download our event poster template and use this to promote your charity event.

After the event, send us full details of your fundraising effort along with any relevant photos, so we can include it on this website and our social pages.

Collection Points serve as “hubs” such as your home or workplace where people living in close proximity can make a delivery.

As we continue to grow, it is getting more and more difficult to reach everyone.  Collection points are integral to our success.
