SPORT enthusiasts are being urged to donate football boots and kit towards a charitable cause.

The message is part of Faith and Football’s Bring Your Boots campaign, which will be launched at Big Yellow Self Storage, in Rodney Road, Milton, this Thursday. The Southsea charity will collect football equipment from donors before sending the goods off to children in Uganda next April. Former Pompey star Linvoy Primus will greet donors from 2pm.

Mick Mellows, director of Faith and Football, said: ‘It’s a tremendous opportunity for us to do something that is meaningful.’
