Fans are asked to dig out their unwanted football shirts – especially children’s ones – to donate.

The kits will then be sent to disadvantaged youngsters in Brazil, ahead of the football World Cup in the country in June.

Some will also be recycled to raise cash for the Wheelchair Football Association.

Shirts can be dropped off at The Travellers Inn, The Common, Ecclesfield, or the Little Mester, Nursery Road, North Anston, before Tuesday April 15.

Brian Henderson, of The Travellers Inn, said: “Project Fair Play is set to make the World Cup more special as we enjoy the on-pitch excitement knowing we’re helping youngsters here and in Brazil too.”

The national scheme launched in 2010, when 20,000 shirts were sent to South Africa.
