Thank you for the shoes!
Thank you to all those families donated their unwanted shoes to our ShoeSare Appeal.
ShoeShare helps children around the world access their right to education and is a campaign in partnership with the Rights Respecting Schools Award and Clarks Shoes. 300 schools have taken part.
The ShoeShare campaign collects old or unwanted shoes. These old or unwanted shoes are then sent for re-use. For every tonne of shoes collected, a donation is made to Unicef by Clarks which goes towards education programmes around the world.
Your shoes will help to change children’s lives by buying educational equipment such as the ‘School in a Box’.
‘School in a Box’ can transform any space into a learning area, with enough resources to educate 40 children, allowing them the chance to learn, no matter where they are, or what disaster has struck them.
Clarks have been working in partnership with UNICEF since 2008 supporting the education of vulnerable children by raising money through shoe donations. ShoeShare drop off points are in more than 500 Clarks stores nationwide.
We were overwhelmed by the generosity of your donations and not only managed to fill the collection bin in the Clarks shop but also left bags and bags piled up by the side of it!
