Firm seeking football boots for Africa
2:55pm Tuesday 15th October 2013 in News
STAFF at a Colchester garden centre are hoping to get a kick out of their latest fundraising venture.
Blenheim Plant and Garden Centre, in Bromley Road, is collecting football boots to help charity ‘Boots for Africa’.
It collects old or unused boots to be sent to Africa and given to anyone who needs them.
John Harris, owner the garden centre, said: “We’ve already had some football boots handed in by customers and we are keen to get as many as we can.
“Your old football boots can change lives and turn young people’s dreams into reality.
“You never know, football boots donated by people in and around Colchester may produce football stars of the future and give a way out of the poverty in Africa.”
