Sponsors

Every pair of Supershoes is funded by donations from kind sponsors, who come in all shapes and sizes…..

From parents of previous recipients who want to ‘pay forward’ the gift of Supershoes, to fundarisers who have organised an event of some description in order to make a donation. We receive one-off payments from some and regular sponsorship from others. Some want to remain anonymous, whilst others are happy to share their donation and/or story.

Here are some of those we are able to share with you.

 Sponsor - A charity night in memory of Mike

A charity night in memory of Mike "Twurpy" Turp

Mike’s family and friends describe him as an incredibly generous and charitable man, always organising events to raise money for good causes. When Mike passed away in 2017, Team Twurpy was set up to carry on his legacy of good work. Although the pandemic meant that 2020’s event was not possible, Team Twurpy was not to be deterred, and set up a virtual race night for 2021, raising over £1700 for Supershoes. Thank you, to everyone who participated, for making this such a special event. Thanks to you, the numbers of children and young people who will now benefit from the gift of Supershoes just keep on growing, as you can see from the gallery pictures; you’ve all made a real difference! Mike’s wonderful spirit lives on in the work you’re doing!

 Sponsor - Art therapy inspired Maris to become a sponsor

Art therapy inspired Maris to become a sponsor

Maris’ beautiful little boy, Frank gained his angel wings just over a year ago. Frank’s diagnosis of T-cell ALL came just as the family were about to celebrate his second birthday. As Maris and her family now come to terms with a different kind of life, she is finding comfort in painting. On the first anniversary of Frank’s passing, Maris decided to dedicate a painting to auction in memory of Frank, and to raise money for Supershoes. Thank you, Maris, so much for thinking of us at this most difficult time, and for using your talent for the benefit of other children. We know their smiles will be a reminder of Frank’s own beautiful smile.
