Here's How To Donate!!

Whether you are donating on your own, in a group, a school or workplace, we really appreciate all your support. The more shoes we collect, the more the campaign will raise! Everyone has an old pair of shoes tucked away at the back of their wardrobe and we need your help to persuade them to donate them to One-Step- Beyond!

Any style of shoe can be donated in reasonable condition.

Please ensure that you sellotape a one pound coin inside each shoe along with the name of the person donating the shoes. All names will be included on the One-Step Beyond website and will be logged as being part of the World Record! Ask everyone you know to give you their shoes and their donation as every little helps

We've got Elton John's Shoes!

We've got Elton John's shoes!


When the One Step Beyond campaign was launched back in November, little did the organisers know that international superstars would be donating their old shoes to sit amongst the 80,000 collected from people across Scotland.

However, when the campaign's record setting attempt takes place on March 25th at Victoria Park in Arbroath, Sir Elton John will be celebrating his 60th birthday with a concert in Madison Square Gardens in New York, safe in the knowledge that his old shoes have gone to an excellent cause.

Sir Elton has given a massive boost to the national campaign by donating a pair of red suede platforms from his 1974 stage show. Sir Elton, who is known to be highly selective in his support of charities other than his own Aids Foundation, jumped at the chance to get on board and the message coming from organisers now is, If Elton can do it, so can you! A statement received from Sir Elton with his shoes reads, "I am delighted to offer my support for the One Step Beyond Campaign and hope a lot of support is given to this initiative which aims to do a lot of good work for important charities as well as give many individuals the chance to be part of creating a new World record. It is a big challenge, and I wish you the best of luck with reaching your target by 25th March 2007."
