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 - Danielle Stonehouse

Danielle Stonehouse

Danielle was inspired to raise money for our charity by her sister, Laura Sumpter, who is one of our Super Artists. Danielle cut off 18 inches of her hair which she donated to Little Princess Trust, arranged a donations box at her work, organised a raffle & BBQ for the ‘big hair chop’ & raised an incredible amount of money in support of this via a Facebook fundraiser … an awesome effort by an awesome sponsor!

 Sponsor - David Cairns

David celebrated his 50th Birthday and instead of gifts, asked his friends & family to donate to Supershoes. This selfless gesture has resulted in funding for numerous pairs of Supershoes.

 Sponsor - David Lock Associates

David Lock Associates

David Lock Associates invites all of its employees to recommend great causes that might benefit from the Company’s charity fund. When one of their colleagues suggested they donate to Supershoes, they immediately agreed. As a design-led company, David Lock Associates recognised the unique qualities of the Supershoes idea & they were delighted that so many children and young people will be enjoying their Supershoes soon.

 Sponsor - De-Novo


Supporting charities has always been part of Lesley Jones’ business ethos, so when she decided to set up an online networking group to complement her business, De-Novo Consultants, she wanted it to be a little different. Lesley decided that her networking events would feature a charity and that payment for the event would support that charity. At Supershoes, we were delighted to present at the inaugural event! Many thanks to Lesley for choosing us and to everyone who came and donated so generously. It was lovely meeting you all. We enjoyed our discussions in the breakout rooms and finding out more about everyone too.

 Sponsor - Dean & Karen

Diane asked us to dedicate her donation in loving memory of Eric Merner. It comprises donations from the O’Connor and Kenny families and friends Pat Brewer, Steve Perry and Debby Peasland. Thank you so much, everyone, for thinking of us at this sad time for you all. Your kind donation will make a big difference to Super brave kids.

 Sponsor - Display Creatives

Lindsey McCluskie’s niece Elsie received a pair of Supershoes back in 2015 and wanted to pay forward the gift of Supershoes. Her company Display Creatives donated £100 to fund two pairs.
