St Francis Hospice appealing for people’s unwanted shoes
St Francis Hospice is appealing for people’s unwanted footwear.
The charity based in Havering-atte-Bower is on the look out for pairs of shoes as part of its Shoe Amnesty which is due to start on November 12.
The project, will see the charity recyling the shoes and then using the money to benefit local people with cancer or other life-limiting illness that need the specialist medical care, physiotherapy, complementary therapy and other services the hospice provides.
Steve Rose, general manager of the hospice shops, said: “It’s such a waste if old shoes are thrown away. Your unwanted trainers, brogues, clogs, sandals, slippers or boots, in any condition, so long as they are in pairs and clean, could help pump up hospice funds. Money raised from the Shoe Amnesty will go towards Saint Francis Hospice’s work providing medical care and emotional support to local people affected by cancer, heart disease or other life-limiting illness.”
The shoes can be donated to the hospice shhops and the drop spots within local businesses.
