Thank you from Sal’s Shoes

Thank you from Sal’s Shoes

Many thanks to the Parents’ Association for organising another Sal’s Shoes collection at the start of this term. Our core team of volunteers, including some Caterham mums, spent a morning sorting and counting and I’m delighted to share that 1,067 pairs were donated.

100 pairs have already been set aside for the Sal’s Shoes pop up ‘shop’ for Ukrainian refugees in Caterham and the surrounding areas in early October – organised by the Ukrainian Project in Caterham and supported by lots of the parents at the school. The space allows families to retain their sense of dignity and exercise choice without having to pay for any of the clothes, books, toys and shoes they select.

60 pairs of trainers have already left for Stripey Stork, the Surrey baby bank who collect donations of clothes, toys and essential items for babies and children aged 0-16 and rehome them with local families experiencing hardship.

Thanks so much to the PA and Caterham families for the ongoing support.
