Ballyfermot United Team Hope Shoebox Appeal

Ballyfermot United are teaming up with Team Hope Ireland to take part in the Shoebox Appeal 2019.

The Shoebox Appeal is a service ran by Team Hope to help less fortunate children in Africa and Eastern Europe receive a gift for Christmas.

It is very simple to do.

  • Get a regular size shoebox.
  • Choose boy or girl.
  • Tick an age group.
  • Fill with appropriate goods.
  • Put a €4 donation in the allotted envelope.

The closing date for the Shoebox Appeal is 8th November so it gives anyone willing to take part plenty of time to get them back to Schoolboy Secretary John Belmont to be shipped to Team Hope.

Please note that this is a voluntary so if anyone wants to take part please let your manager know or message the Ballyfermot United Facebook page.

This is open to all our coaches, players, parents and supporters.

Giving a Shoebox could make a child’s Christmas so Ballyfermot United are grateful to anyone who can take part. For more information you can contact Ballyfermot United by phone on 01-626 7649 or 01-626 7584 or by email at or go to
