We in this country take the shoes on our feet for granted. Many people in other countries are not as lucky as us and by donating your second-hand shoes, you will be directly helping someone a little less fortunate than yourself. A recycling company will take all the shoes on our behalf and ensure that they get to where they are really needed most.

On 25 March 2007, you can be part of setting a new world record of the longest line of shoes, in pairs ever laid out! The event will take place in Arbroath where we aim to cover a distance of 12 miles and to do this we need to collect 80,000 pairs of shoes!

We aim to collect 80,000 pairs of second-hand shoes, each with a £2 donation. The total raised of £160,000 will be split between four charities:

No More Landmines Trust - This trust aims to relieve poverty, distress and suffering in many parts of the world and in particular, in countries recovering from conflict.

Cancer Research UK - Cancer Research UK supports research into all aspects of cancer through the work of more than 3,000 scientists, doctors and nurses.

Children in Need - Over £30 million was raised on the BBC Children in Need Appeal last year with all the money raised going towards helping and supporting children and young people across the UK.

Angus College Charitable Trust - This fund helps support students in severe financial hardship complete their studies and improve their quality of life
