Boots for Africa collection at Rugby Park

A ‘Boots for Africa’ collection will take place at our Rugby Park car park this Saturday (October 31) from 10.30-11.30am.

The appeal follows a social media post from 1997 Scottish Cup winner Dylan Kerr, who has worked on the continent for a number of years and witnessed the joy that football brings to so many lives across Africa.

If you would like to donate boots to the cause please wrap them in a plastic bag and label with the content (eg football boots and the size).

Given the current restrictions around COVID-19, boxes will be available to deposit the boots in to ensure minimal handling.

Anyone wishing to donate sets of strips are asked to have these in vacuum bags while including a list of contents.
