Shopping centre chooses children’s charity as 2018-19 partnerNov 24, 2018
The Milton Keynes-based charity gives children with cancer an opportunity to receive a pair of customised shoes created by one of over 300 volunteering ‘Super Artists’ and support staff.
The charity was founded almost five years ago by Sarah and Ken White and now receives over 30 referrals a week for requests for shoes. Having recently sent out its 2,500th pair of customised Supershoes the charity is now looking forward to its next chapter through its exclusive charity partnership with centre:mk.
Sarah said: “This is a tremendous opportunity to raise awareness of childhood cancer, giving a voice to the 11 children diagnosed every day in the UK while highlighting the work our charity does to empower these young people.
“We have a goal of raising over £10,000 for our charity through the partnership with centre:mk this year which would enable us to produce 200 pairs of shoes.”
centre:mk’s centre director Kevin Duffy added: “Supershoes is a unique and worthy charity which we truly believe our guests will connect with. We know just how important it is for children to feel empowered and strengthened during cancer treatment and the shoes this charity produce do just that in an incredibly unique way – which is why we are impassioned about supporting them to meet their target.”
