LUCTONIANS MOURN THE PASSING OF ‘BOOTS FOR ALL’ CHARITY PATRON

Friend of Luctonians, supporter of our Under 16 tours to South Africa, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, died yesterday. The Peacemaker and Champion of Human Rights, was also patron of the Boots for All charity, founded by brothers Matthew & George Kirk and their father Andrew, and supported by their club, Luctonians. In 2003, the Kirks and a delegation from Lucs met with the Archbishop in his office in Cape Town followed, in 2006, by the first U16 tour to the Southern Cape; tours which continue to this day. Watch the great man’s message to us that year.
RIP Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
