Have you ever grumbled about the traffic on the way to school?
Have you ever moaned because the bus doesn’t get you from your house so you have to walk to the bus stop?
Have you ever pretended to be poorly so you didn’t have to walk to school in the rain?
Well, imagine your journey to school with no shoes on.
Many children in Africa have to walk over 10 miles just to get to school. As you can imagine, this makes access to education nearly impossible for so many children. To make matters worse, majority of African children do not own a pair of shoes. Imagine how difficult this would be and how it would feel if you were in this situation.
By donating a single pair of shoes, you have provided a person with a possibility to make their future hopeful and successful. These shoes will go to Clarks, who will distribute these shoes to children in various parts of Africa.
We previously help to ‘Wrap Up Lancs’ and we collected over 500 old coats and scarves to clothe the homeless. I’m sure we saved many people’s lives that winter. We are hoping that we have achieved the same success again and look forward to counting up the shoes on Friday 1st April.
