Recently, during Soroptimists we have been working hard on the project ‘Clarks Shoe Share’. ‘Clarks Shoe Share’ is an appeal to collect shoes for African children, young adults and grown ups. Shoe share supplies them all with their own pairs of shoes and others are made into different useful products, including school supplies and clothing.
During the past few weeks we have been collecting as many shoes as we can. We have collected approximately 85 pairs of shoes, all going to the African adults and children.
During lunch times, we have worked hard at making sure that all of these shoes are wearable for them. These shoes will really help them walk to school and work.
Abigail and Sasha from Year 8 , took the Shoes to Clarks Shoes at Deepdale Retail Park. They will then be taken to Africa to be worn If the shoes aren’t suitable to wear, they will still be put into use and made into useful stationary and products.
Our Soroptimists project was very successful and we would definitely do it again.
