Barefoot Walk Nottingham 2013

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 afterwards 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.

Follow us on Twitter @BarefootNottm or visit our Facebook page to chat with us

If you have any questions – please feel free to get in touch – we’d love to hear from you.

  1. Hi There, l am a 15yr old singer songwriter from Nottingham and I would like you to please check out my music and if you like it, could I have a slot at barefoot walk please.

  3. Both the activity of this charity and the walks themselves are an absolute inspiration. The next time someone tells you that a single person can’t make a difference – remember these guys. We hope this really goes from strength to strength – good on you Lee and Sarah!

  4. Barefoot – what a great idea. I love the practical wisdom of REUSE our SHOES. I’ve raided our wardrobes and found 4 pairs. The campaign needs 30,000 so put your best foot forward and support this great event for the whole family.

  5. Sorry that I can’t be there to support you in your barefoot walk, but I will be in Holland this weekend. I hope that you all have a fantastic day and raise lots of money and shoes for this worthy charity. Keep up the good work! Xx
