This is a boot shaped silhouette-cut plastic badge with a metal pin and two woollen ties. It has a cream coloured background with black text "I Have Kicked Just For Luck". It has two wool ties, tied together in single knot, at the top - one cream tie, one black.

Badges were a popular fundraising feature right through the twentieth century. They reflect the causes and interests of the communities in which they were sold, and some are now highly collectable.
