Head of Events
In a previous life Deb was a hairdresser for more than twenty years. When my girls started school I decided to train as a teaching assistant and have worked in education for the last 16 years. Despite working in an affluent village school of only 183 pupils I could still name 13 children in desperate need of school shoes.
We can always find a jumper, trousers, underwear even a coat but we can never offer a pair of school shoes. Occasionally pumps or wellies are donated but never shoes so I can only guess what other schools situations must be. I am very proud to be part of this amazing charity and helping children and adults with their footwear needs.
