Tommy’s launches ‘New for Old’ campaign with Brantano Footwear



The ‘New for Old’ campaign asks people to give shoes they no longer want to their nearest Brantano store nationwide from 17 March – 10 April 2011 Brantano will donate 20p to Tommy’s for every pair of shoes handed in, in the hope of raising £25,000 to help fund the charity’s research into pregnancy complications such as miscarriage, premature birth and stillbirth.

"Do you have a pair of old shoes that you could hand over for a good cause? Not only can you clear your wardrobe space but also help Brantano raise valuable funds for Tommy's, giving more families in the UK a chance to have happy and healthy babies."


Furthermore, customers who bring in their old shoes will also receive a £10 off voucher to redeem against any purchases of £40 or more at Brantano Footwear – giving you further help when it comes to kick-starting your spring wardrobe.


‘New for Old’ will be running from Thursday 17 March to Sunday 10 April 2011 in all Brantano stores nationwide. For more information visit and for your nearest store go to

Featured Charity - Help For Heroes

Help for Heroes Celebrity Golf Day at Stoke Park
I was so pleased to be able to help out with the charity golf day. I was even more pleased that my job was inside on registration with Emma, Steve, Chris and Lee, rather than on the green as it was one of the wettest days this year! It was lovely to be working with a team of people from Bolton, you really can't beat 'northern folk'!
The weather didn't stop a good turn out of golfers though, each team headed by a celebrity player. Over £130,000 was raised in total. A fantastic amount for a very worthy cause.
Thanks John for the delicious pasties, they went down a treat!
