The more observant of you will have noticed a new logo on our website, and a new donation box within our umpires rooms.
Boots for All is a social enterprise that aims to promote an active and inclusive Australia through Sport.
Boots for All collect donated reusable sporting equipment (from runners/boots to balls, bats etc.), and we have recently added a donation box in our rooms.
Collected goods are either provided directly to disadvantaged communities (to break down the entry barriers to sport), or resold in the Sport for All shop in Briar Hill. The shop sells new and donated items, and provides vulnerable young people with accredited training and paid employment while raising funds to support the program.
If you've got some pre-loved (but usable) boots or sporting gear, we'd love you to consider donating it to Boots for All. If you're in the market for some gear, you could also consider checking out their online or Briar Hill shop! You may even meet Boots for All founder Joanne Rockwell, mother of former VAFA umpire Jacob.
You can see the flyers in our rooms, or visit www.bootsforall.org.au to find out more!
