The Mayor of Milton Keynes has donated her shoes to charity after reading about an appeal in The Citizen.
Councillor Catriona Morris read about The Living Room’s shoe drive in aid of Harry’s Rainbow - a charity set up by the family of Harry Mould who died in 2009 aged just five. The charity supports families dealing with bereavement.
After finding out about the drive, the Mayor was more than happy to give over a few pairs.
Mrs Morris said: “Harry’s Rainbow is an amazing charity helping support children who are dealing with a bereavement, often of a parent or sibling. At such a difficult time for a child, it is great that Harry’s Rainbow can help them.
“I read in The Citizen that the Living Room were collecting old shoes to raise money for this charity, and I wanted to help.”
The Living Room, at the Hub, is collecting old shoes, boots, wellies, anything that goes on your feet to raise money for the charity.
Mrs Morris added: “I’m sure lots of people have old shoes, that might be broken or no longer fit.
“Please take any that you can to The Living Room before the end of the month to help the charity.”
