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.
Team Georgia pledged to give Supershoes to one super child every month in 2016 in memory of Super Georgia. A super brave little girl who was so kind to others despite all the challenges she faced.
Previous recipient of Supershoes, Super Harrison and his family, were keen to raise money for all the charities and organisations, including Supershoes, who helped them through Harrison’s Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia journey.
5 year old Super Rossi received a pair of Supershoes and his amazing Super Mum set up a charity to help other children fighting cancer. The charity helps them to have fun days out and do nice things. Part of that is funding Supershoes like Rossi’s and these.
After a presentation by our volunteer Anne Bauling, this warm and friendly WI donated to Supershoes. Their secretary said “Cancer in children effects not only the child but carers, family and those around them and something so simple as a pair of shoes being personalised just for them we saw brings so much pleasure to the child, but also to those close who can see and benefit from the smiles and excitement that can be so far and few during gruelling treatment and illness”.
