This year, The Nottingham Barefoot Walk is on Sunday 7th September at Wollaton Park.
The Barefoot Walk was the brainchild of Lee Todd who wanted to draw people’s attention to the plight of those unfortunate people around the world who go barefoot every day – but not by choice. Lee started a charity called Shoe-Aid which collects your unwanted shoes and sends them to places they are needed. So far, Lee has sent over 30,000 pairs of shoes to Africa with the help of The National Police Aid Convoy.
The Barefoot Walk is a great family day. We want you to take a stroll around the beautiful grounds of Wollaton Park (it’s not a race!) and enjoy the free music festival and all the amusements and stalls we have – with the added bonus that you are doing your bit for charity.
Come for the walk, stay for the entertainment and please bring any unwanted pairs of shoes with you to go in the Shoe-Aid bins.
If you have any questions – please feel free to get in touch – we’d love to hear from you.
