CHARITY BOOTS: Two Radlett 12-year-olds set up collection

 Published on: 21st October 2023   |   By: Sophia Sheera   |   Category: Uncategorized

Two schoolboys in Radlett are collecting second-hand football boots for Charity Boots, a UK-based organisation which supports aspiring footballers unable to buy their own.

12-year-olds Harry and Harley have collected more than 70 pairs of boots so far and plan to donate their haul to Charity Boots on November 4.

The boys told RadlettNews: “We both love football and are very fortunate to be able to play regularly and have new boots when we outgrow a pair.

“We were very upset when we heard there were children who also love football but do not have the opportunity to safely play the game they are also so passionate about.

“Our goal is to collect as many unwanted boots as possible and give joy to children who don’t have the same opportunities as us.”

Most recently, Charity Boots has teamed up with a Colombian football group who will receive the next shipment of footwear.

To donate your spare football boots to Harry and Harley’s collection, the Easy Wellbeing Health Food shop on Radlett High Street is the drop-off point.
