Since 2006, Boots for All, a sporting goods recycling charity, has been on a mission to dissolve barriers to sport and social inclusion across Australia.
As part of this mission, Boots for All break down barriers to sport participation and strengthen communities by collecting and distributing quality, new and near-new sporting equipment to vulnerable Australians.
Boots for All’s objectives are;
- To break down barriers to sports participation by collecting and distributing quality, new and near-new sporting equipment,
- To break down barriers to social exclusion by providing training & employment opportunities for people with barriers to employment.
Boots for All’s pop-up shops are a great way to contribute to their cause when you have all your community members in one place! Auskick venues are popular, as are Registration Days, Open Days, School fairs, etc.
In pre-covid times, these pop-ups occurred only in Melbourne and due to covid they are currently unavailable.
However, you can register to host a pop-up shop at your club, organisation or workplace and if your event is big enough (say a regional agricultural show, or a major regional festival) they may be open to bringing one to Junee or the Riverina???
