If the school holiday is already beginning to take its toll and you are trying to find things to do with your little ones next week, then get yourself down to popular shoe retailer Brantano. Stores across the country are inviting children to take part in a truly heroic fundraising reading event next Wednesday (10th August, from 11am until 3pm.)
Raising much needed funds for Macmillan Cancer Support, the shoe retailer will be hosting a story telling day across it stores throughout England. To further add to the excitement and interest levels for youngsters, all those taking part are being asked to turn up as their favourite superhero, because, let’s face it, who doesn’t enjoy the opportunity to dress up!
Karen Staton, Retail Operations Director of Brantano, explains a little more: “We are delighted to be running this story-telling day, and we hope lots of children turn out dressed like their favourite superheroes. It should be great fun for everyone and will hopefully raise lots of money for a very worthy cause.”
“Summer is also an important time for many parents, as it’s not too long until attention turns to children going back to school. Brantano provides a top class shoe fitting service, carried out by our experts on the subject, to ensure pupils all over the country will be returning to school in footwear that is perfectly suited to them.” I recently tried out the Brantano fitting service and have to say I was really impressed with the choice and variety of shoes and the efficiency of the service, so I agree this could be the perfect way to get new shoes, enjoy a fun session and help raise money for charity.
So far Brantano has raised more than £7,000 for the charity through a number of fundraising events nationwide. It is hoped the final figure will stand at £40,000.
