Charity wants shoes

WOMEN across the borough are being asked to put their best foot forward for Barnardo’s Shoe Appeal.

Celebrities are encouraging women to free themselves from their unworn or unloved shoes and help raise thousands for the most vulnerable children.

Figures indicate the typical woman has now amassed a collection of 39 pairs. Barnardo’s shops in the borough are particularly in need of ladies shoes and accessories, as well as men’s and children’s shoes.

Donated items will be sold through the stores and profit to supporting the charity’s services.
