LFE has announced it’s support for the Boots for Africa appeal and agreed to coordinate donations from Apprentices, while promoting the Boots for Africa campaign nationally through all Football League clubs.
Mark Beevers, ‘Apprentice of the Year 2008’ and now a first-team regular with Sheffield Wednesday, was on hand to launch LFE’s support.

Robert Hezel, LFE’s Chief Finance Officer said:
“We’re pleased to be able to support Boots for Africa by supplying used boots from our Apprentices. We are also donating all the new sample boots that our sponsor, Puma, provide to show players what’s available.”
“It’s a great campaign and we hope to inspire even more players to join in and donate their unwanted boots.”
Boots for Africa has been devised by Sheffield FC – the world’s first football club – with the aim of collecting as many pairs of football boots as possible for under-privileged children in Africa.
Junior clubs, schools and members of the public can donate their wearable boots of any size to the campaign by making a £2 donation for each pair of boots to receive their bag.
