Have you got Old Shoes to Recycle

Have you got running shoes that you no longer use but don’t want to throw  in the bin?  They can be put to good use.  Shoes play such an important role in everyone’s lives – can you imagine not owning a pair?
Many people have nothing to keep their feet warm and clean and we can all do our little bit to help those less fortunate than ourselves.
Please help us to deliver your shoes as quickly as we can by following the guidelines below;

  • SPORTS SHOES only please.
  • NO HOLES AND GOOD SOLES. It is not worth shipping shoes to an orphanage in Southern Africa if they are broken! We want to send shoes that will last a whole winter.
  • CLEAN! Would you like to receive a dirty pair of shoes? They can be hand scrubbed or washed on a short cold cycle in the washing machine. Best dried in the sun stuffed with newspaper – no tumble trying please as it destroys the shoe.

Jodie can collect shoes from people if that is more convenient.  “I will have a box in my car.  I am usually at QSAC on Tuesday mornings and sometimes Saturday.”
