This winter, myself and my colleagues in the IT department have decided to raise money for the Stand By Me shoe appeal. Stand By Me support 3,500 children at risk in 7 different countries through children’s homes, schools and care centres.
Our aim is to buy 125 pairs of shoes, protecting the feet of children as they journey through life.
Every step protected
The gift of shoes protects a child’s feet from harm everywhere they journey, to and from school each day, on every errand and expedition. When our kids receive a pair of shoes they burst with joy and are given the confidence to walk through mud, climb over rocks and splash through puddles. They are secure in the knowledge that their feet are protected from cuts, damage and disease and free to adventure into all life has to offer.
Will you give the gift of a pair of shoes this winter and help children know they are loved and cared for?
Please give generously. All money donated will go directly towards purchasing shoes for the children under Stand By Me's care. Plus, the more money raised the more funny tasks the IT guys will do!
Thank you, Matt Gillingham
