Thameside Primary School Donate School Shoes
ON the last day of term, pupils at Thameside Primary School took off their schools shoes, placed them on their desks and left the school barefoot!
Their shoes will be sent to children in Africa via the work of Sal’s Shoes. There are 300 million barefoot children worldwide. 58 million children worldwide are not in school.29 million of these are because they do not have the means. In many countries you cannot go to school without a pair of shoes.
248 pairs of shoes have been collected by pupils at Thameside Primary School to be donated to Sal’s Shoes. Sal’s shoes are a charity who collect and distribute shoes all around the world to help children have access to shoes.
We will be delivering the shoes to their new homes in the Autumn term.
