Pull on your all singing, all dancing silly shoes

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

The stars of sport, stage and screen have voted with their feet to show their sup­port for the CHAS Fes­tive Footwear cam­paign.

At the glit­ter­ing Sun­day Mail and Steven Brown Art Great Scot Awards on Satur­day night, celebri­ties were lin­ing up to put on their best fes­tive footwear and sup­port the Christ­mas CHAS cam­paign.

And here are some of the top names in Scot­tish sport and show­biz – in­clud­ing the event’s main spon­sor, artist Steven Brown, who donned his elf shoes to en­cour­age oth­ers to jazz up their footwear on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 14.

CHAS – Chil­dren’s Hos­pices Across Scot­land – is ask­ing all Scots to take part in Fes­tive Footwear Fri­day to raise vi­tal funds to keep the smiles on kids’ faces.

Slip into your fes­tive slip­pers, shuf­fle to work in your sparkly shoes, or rock your party socks – then do­nate just £2 to help this ex­tra­or­di­nary char­ity.

CHAS knows that Christ­mas is the most won­der­ful time of the year for ev­ery fam­ily and that in­cludes those with chil­dren who may be facing their last fes­tive season.

But with their two hos­pices, Rachel House in Kin­ross and Robin House in Bal­loch, as well as home­care sup­port, CHAS helps fam­i­lies en­joy a fun and laugh­ter filled Christ­mas, mak­ing mem­o­ries that last a life­time. But it comes at a cost. Just one day’s care in Robin and Rachel House is £5650 each and it costs CHAS £12,750 ev­ery day to pro­vide care in hos­pices, homes and in hos­pi­tals.

In De­cem­ber alone CHAS will spend more than £400,000 to make sure chil­dren and fam­i­lies get to en­joy pre­cious time with each other.

You can help them reach their fes­tive tar­get, and have some fun at the same time.

Step for­ward to take part in Fes­tive Footwear Fri­day, CHAS’ ur­gent Christ­mas ap­peal on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 14.
