Banner is delighted to be supporting Sal's Shoes 'Toe to Toe' school shoes initiative 2023

Since 2016, Sal’s Shoes has distributed over 4 million pairs of pre-loved children’s shoes in 59 countries around the world, including within the UK, to support families who would otherwise be unable to afford them.

Sal's Shoes was set up to collect and distribute pre-loved shoes to children, and their consignments have provided many children with a pair of shoes for the very first time.

Why Sal's Shoes?

The charity identified that, in many countries around the world, the education system is free to access, but school uniform is mandatory. This means people who can’t afford a pair of shoes, can’t go to school.

Many young people tend to outgrow their shoes before they outwear them. Shoes are relatively difficult to recycle because of all the different components they are made up of... so Sal’s Shoes find them new feet!

We felt compelled to help such a wonderful charity by firstly sending all registered schools the rubber bands needed to pair their shoes together, and secondly by raising awareness of this charity to our customers and contacts.

We provide educational and workplace supplies to hundreds of schools across the country and hope by supporting this charity, we will help to encourage even more schools to take part in the Toe to Toe campaign.
