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.

Jeanette is one of our Super Trustees, and with a career in paediatric oncology, she knows more than most about just what children and young people go through on their cancer journeys.

A massive thanks to you and your friends, Jeanette.
