Shoes with a pur­pose

Wanneroo Weekender - - News -

HUN­DREDS of sports shoes col­lected in War­wick have found a fit­ting pur­pose 600km away.

A cam­paign run by char­ity GIVIT has de­liv­ered 250 pairs of do­nated used and new shoes to Kal­go­or­lie-Boul­der young­sters.

War­wick Sta­dium was the col­lec­tion point for the shoes dur­ing the two-week cam­paign, sup­ported by Stir­ling Sen­a­tors Bas­ket­ball Club, War­wick Work­out and War­wick Women’s Work­out.

GIVIT’s WA man­ager Travis Fitch said the re­gion had sig­nif­i­cant lev­els of dis­ad­van­tage, with many fam­i­lies strug­gling to pro­vide ap­pro­pri­ate footwear for school or sport­ing ac­tiv­i­ties.

True Brothers So­cial Club is dis­tribut­ing the shoes. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit givit.org.au.
