Help us support students in South Africa by donating your unwanted football shirts

Help us support students in South Africa by donating your unwanted Football shirts! Donate before Friday 22 May at The Edge or The Student Activities Office in LUU.


As part of our partnership with St Mary’s Menston, the University of Leeds will be supporting their very successful Bambisanani project this summer at Mnyakana High School in South Africa.

Mnyakanya High School is located in one of the most deprived areas of South Africa and serves a vast area with many students walking two hours to and from school each day. 

The Bambisanani project uses sport to inspire and motivate students and in June, staff and students from St Mary’s Menston and the University will visit Mnyakanya. Whilst there, the team will deliver sports leadership training, academic lessons, work in a local primary school and deliver sport in Zulufadder Orphanage.

How Can You Help?

The team will be taking sports kit and equipment to Mnyakanya as resources are very limited. The University would like to contribute to this by taking across a large quantity of football shirts to give to the school for their students.

So until Friday 22 May, we will be collecting football shirts.  We are asking staff and students to donate any unwanted football shirts for the students in South Africa.

You can donate your (clean!) football shirts at the two collection points;  The Edge or the Students Activities Office in LUU.

We are hoping to take a big collection of shirts so don't forget to donate!

For more information please contact Andy Lockwood.
