Wear slippers to school and help Shelter

Slippers for Shelter sees school children being asked to kick off their shoes to raise money in support of homeless children

Posted by Julian Owen | October 18, 2017 | Events

With over 125,000 children currently homeless in Britain, Shelter is calling on schools to wear slippers at school in a fun and easy fundraiser supporting the charity’s work helping families with nowhere to call home.

Schools are encouraged to take part in other fundraising activities on the day, such as bake sales, raffles and slipper catwalks.

Shelter has also created a range of learning resources to get children thinking about homelessness, such as creative writing worksheets and home-themed colouring sheets.

Polly Neate, chief executive of Shelter, said: “Slippers for Shelter is a great way for children across the country to make a difference to the lives of thousands of children who have nowhere to call home.

“The support and generosity from the students and staff of every school that takes part is hugely appreciated. Every penny raised will go towards helping us provide expert advice and support for any family facing homelessness this Christmas.”

The event will take place on December 8. To find out more about how to sign-up for Slippers for Shelter, and give your support to Shelter’s emergency Christmas appeal visit
