Appeal for Used Football Kit
umthobo project

Following on from last season's highly successful and rewarding donation of over 50 AC Oxgangs kits to the James Gillespie's High School Global Citizen Project, we have now entered into our own formal agreement with the South African charity Umthombo to provide additional unwanted club & replica football kits for distribution among the street children of Durban. Umthombo's aims are to provide organised football events in an effort to gain trust and reintegrate the children back into the mainstream community.

It goes without saying that these 'street kids' have no resources which would allow them to own even the most basic of football kit and this has led the charity to appeal to us once more for unwanted shirts, shorts, socks, boots, trainers, shin-guards, training kit etc. All sizes are welcome as are any colours and teams - from AC Oxgangs to AC Milan, Hearts, Hibs or the Old Firm through to Man United or Chelsea - each strip will, without doubt, be highly prized and cared for by their grateful recipients!


If you have any kit which you think may be of use please consider donating it to our appeal.

Our Child Protection Officer, Cheryl Lee, has kindly volunteered to co-ordinate the campaign and arrange for the collection and distribution of donated kit to South Africa.

If you, or friends or relatives, would like to contribute please contact Cheryl
Telephone 0131 445 4573 or email
