Sal's Shoes Fundraiser


                                            

 

Over a number of weeks,1018 have been receiving donations of new and used children's shoes for a charity called Sal's Shoes. These shoes will be sent to children in developing countries and this year their particular focus is to donate 35,000 pairs of shoes to children in Syria. For nearly 300 million children having shoes is a rarity and this makes them vulnerable to infections and diseases. They are also likely to be excluded from school because they don’t have shoes. Without an education so many of these children will remain in poverty for life. The class have collected around 65 pairs of shoes. To help cover the cost of transport, 1018 also held a cake sale and raised £160. The girls were delighted with this achievement.
