SHOES FOR SCHOOLS
Join York Vikings Rotary, Pavers, and PIB Insurance Brokers in our mission to uplift our community’s most vulnerable children. We’re proud to have donated £20,000 worth of quality shoes to those who need them most, ensuring that no child is left without suitable footwear this winter and beyond. We’ve partnered with Door 84, who have already distributed these shoes to over 50 deserving children across York in the run-up to Christmas. But the need continues, and we’re asking local schools to aid us in this cause.
Our ‘best foot forward’ initiative is a response to the distressing choices many families face today – between food, heating, and essential clothing for their children. But we believe that no child should have to forego the comfort and dignity of a decent pair of shoes. We know that a new pair of shoes can be empowering for any child, especially those who are often resigned to hand-me-downs. As the cost of living crisis deepens, the need for our initiative becomes even more urgent.
We’re calling on headteachers and class teachers to reach out to Door 84, so that we can get these shoes to the children who need them most. We’re committed to handling this process with the utmost sensitivity and discretion, and we trust our schools to help us in this endeavor. Together, we can ensure that every child in our community is equipped to face the winter with warmth, comfort, and dignity. Let’s put our best foot forward, together.
