Cardiff Students Support No Shoes November
Feeling the cold? Cardiff students go without shoes for a month to raise money for charity
Winter is in full blast in Cardiff but this hasn’t stopped a group of crazy students taking their shoes off in a bid to raise money for Edith’s Home, a charity providing support for orphaned children in Uganda as well as Tearfund, Kenyan Orphan Project and Stand By Me.
The group have shunned their shoes for the month of November in the hope of raising as much money as possible for the charity. This has made daily student life a little bit more interesting for them as trips to the supermarket and walking to uni have become logistical challenges.
This tricky task has not been easy on the glass ridden pavements of Cathays but the group have managed to avoid major injury.
That’s not to say they haven’t raised a few eyebrows, with some of the group even being offered shoes and sleeping bags by members of the public.
At least in Cardiff you can still go out without shoes on and the group have not missed out on student life.
All together they’ve raised a whopping £7802.24, but they’re aiming for much more.
