Share need your old school shoes! Registered charity Share is calling on all schools across Flintshire & Cheshire to join in and help refugee children who are in desperate need of shoes.

Share will then offer a number of drop off points for the shoes from each school to be dropped at and then distribute the shoes to children in refugee camps around the World.
