Just a reminder that next Thursday 12 Sept is Re-Use Ya Shoes! day. Next Thursday we will be collecting old shoes for re-cycling from participating schools around the country, and it's still not too late to get involved.Â Instead of binningÂ old school shoes, football boots, trainers and wellies we're asking that you donate them and help to raise those vital funds to keep the Air Ambulance flying and saving lives. It doesnâ€™t matter how old or what condition they are in, any shoe will do and they can all be recycled. Much like the â€˜Bag A Braâ€™ campaign, the shoes are sold on through reputable traders in other countries, or if they are in really bad condition they can be used for parts to repair other footwear, so nothing is wasted.Â
And if your local school is not involved in 'Re-use Ya Shoes!' day, you can still take your old shoes to the nearest HIOWAA textile re-cycling bank, a list of whichh can be found under the 'Re-cycling' tab above. Â Please make sure that all shoes are dry and in bags. Â
For more information about â€˜Re-use Ya Shoes!â€™ please call the office on 02380 333377 to request a special green bag or visit our 'Re-use Ya Shoes' page.
