Shoe-athon for Shoe Aid

30 November 2017

Shoe Aid

Shoe Aid was founded in July 2010 to distribute shoes to homeless people and children in the UK who wear the wrong sized shoes - of which there are around 4 million.

Shoe Aid works with Keep Britain Tidy & Eco Schools to educate children on the importance of recycling and reusing old, unwanted footwear. Having started with a sample of 100 schools, Shoe Aid now works with 17,800 schools across the UK.

Since July 2010, Shoe Aid has distributed over half a million shoes worldwide.

Shoe Aid is holding a 'Shoe-athon' from 1 December to 30 December - collecting shoes of all sizes and types no matter what the condition - shoes can be dropped off at Store First Derby, a self-storage facility on Riverside Road, Pride Park which is open Monday to Saturday 8am to 6pm and Sunday 10am to 4pm.
