Heel Appeal – collecting unwanted shoes to help The Mustard Tree
14 Mar 2013
This March, the Rewards and Benefits Team is working with one of our staff discount providers, The Living Room, on their brand new campaign, The Heel Appeal!
We want your old, unwanted or out-grown shoes. Donated shoes will be recycled and sold to raise cash to fund Mustard Tree Charity who do vital work helping with the homeless and marginalised across the City.
All types and condition of footwear will be welcomed so, whether you have towering stilettos that have never seen the light of day, or much-loved loafers on their last legs, we can give your unwanted shoes a new lease of life!
You can donate your old shoes at:
- Shoe bin outside HR Reception, Room G.029, John Owens Building
- The Living Room bar & restaurant 80 Deansgate Manchester M3 2ER
We can accept ladies', men's and children's shoes – simply drop off your shoes any time before 31 March 2013.
