Success of Rotary shoe appeal

No shoes have been safe in Glossopdale in the last few weeks - Glossop Rotary Club members have been collecting them as part of their latest charity campaign.

Community service chairman Gill Redfern, who organised the shoe hunt, said: “We collected more than 330 pairs towards our District Shoe Aid campaign. 

“There has been an overwhelming response for this Footwear Poverty Campaign.” 

Glossop was one of 40 Rotary Clubs in the district who collected more than 6,000 pairs of shoes, making the footwear poverty campaign a huge success.

Collectively clubs also raised over £2,250 for the Shoe Aid UK, to enable them to continue to distribute cleaned, sanitised and boxed footwear, free of charge to the needy people in the UK and overseas. 

It is estimated that 200,000 homeless people in the UK lack proper footwear and that four million children need fit for purpose shoes.
