Church Pharmacy team volunteers for Shoe Aid

Two of our wonderful team members, Shanay and Sara, recently dedicated their time to volunteer with Shoe Aid. Their day was spent at the charity's headquarters in Nottingham, where they paired and sorted shoes destined to bring comfort and dignity to individuals facing footwear poverty both in the UK and worldwide.

Shoe Aid, a UK-based charity, is on a mission to alleviate the burden of footwear poverty by sourcing and distributing free shoes through a robust collection and distribution network. Their vision is simple yet profound: to ensure that no child or adult has to endure the hardships of life without proper footwear while simultaneously addressing the environmental impact of discarded shoes ending up in landfills.

At Church Pharmacy, we stand firmly behind this noble cause. We recognise the critical importance of addressing both environmental degradation and the harsh reality faced by thousands of individuals who lack access to adequate footwear. Beyond mere comfort, proper shoes are essential for foot health, educational opportunities, and fostering self-esteem.

But our support doesn't end there. We are committed to continuing our partnership with Shoe Aid, contributing to their tireless efforts to make a tangible difference in the lives of those in need. We believe in the power of collective action to create lasting change.

Shoe Aid relies on footwear contributions to perform its service to those in need - as at least 280,000 homeless people in the UK have no shoes or have shoes that are breaking apart – and is working with several businesses to provide donation boxes where you can take your old items of footwear.
