Weʼre raising £5,000 to help tend to the feet of the homeless and provide new shoes!

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I am a qualified chiropodist and for the past 10 years I have been tending the feet of the homeless in Poole in a voluntary capacity.
Over a year ago I began buying and fitting brand new Karrimor waterproof walking shoes in order to protect their feet for longer. Homeless people often don't take footwear off for days at a time and walk many miles a day. The service I provide them enables them to walk in dry comfort and the feedback I receive is enormous gratitude from people who often have never owned a new pair of shoes in their life.
Recently I had a filmed interview by the BBC South which has generated a huge interest and having spent over £1,000 out of my own money, I realise I need some help from other people. BBC South Interview with over 4.1 million views!
I do my work at the Routes to Roots charity drop in centre, here's a link to Route to Roots Charity Page. Every penny of the money raised that comes to me will go directly to purchasing new shoes.
