Last year Lindfield FC members were asked to donate their pre-loved boots and the response was fantastic! Thanks to our own Lindfield FC members we received over 400 boots which have since been cleaned and distributed to communities around Australia.
A local coach from the remote community of Mornington Island said that the kids who received the boots “thought they were real footballers because they were putting a pair of football boots on their feet. They haven't taken them off their feet - they absolutely love them”
The need for donated boots is ongoing and we are again asking for your old boots so we can distribute them to those who often cannot afford to buy their own.
If you have any old pairs, they can be dropped off at the clubhouse from next week on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 5-9pm. The clubhouse address is 76A Highfield Road, Lindfield.
We do have a small favour to ask, if you could please remove the laces and place them inside boots before dropping them off, it will help us get a head start on getting them cleaned and looking like new!
Volunteers for the cleaning days in Turramurra are always needed, and so if you would like to further contribute to this initiative please get in touch with Ilan at ihurwitz23@gmail.com.
