Put your best foot forward for Shoesday

Wacky, mismatched and plain strange footwear will be acceptable for school or work on Tuesday 13th June when Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice asks people to put on their funkiest boots, flats or brogues to celebrate Shoesday.

For one day only, Bluebell Wood is asking people to leave their sensible shoes at home and don their oddest, brightest or crazily-laced footwear in return for a £1 donation to the children’s charity.

Funds raised will help the North Anston-based hospice, which cares for children and young adults with life-shortening and life-threatening conditions, get a little closer to the £4 million target it needs to reach each year to keep its doors open.

Helen Mower, Head of Fundraising at Bluebell Wood, said: “We want as many people as possible to fish out their wackiest footwear and help us to get that bit nearer our annual fundraising target. If people can take a photo of their fancy feet and share it with us on Twitter at @Bluebellwoodch using the hashtag #Shoesday, we’ll all be able to see just what wild and wonderful footwear is out there.

“It’s the perfect excuse for you to show off whatever funky or eye-catching footwear you have lurking in your wardrobe. We’re certainly looking forward to seeing some fabulous foot fashion on display here at Bluebell Wood. It’s going to be great fun. I’m sure plenty of us will be competing to see just who’s got the craziest shoes.”
