Spanning 10,000 sq feet, Arnotts boasts the largest shoe department in the country. Afterwards shoes will be auctioned online in late May and funds raised will go to Walk in My Shoes.
So, what's Walk In My Shoes all about? It's a noble fundraiser looking to provide support mental health and services to vulnerable young adults in Ireland. It was inspired by a 16-year-old residing in St. Patrick’s University Hospital who wished his friends could ‘walk in his shoes’ to understand what he was going through...
There's a multitude of ways to support this very important cause. You can host a shoe day in work, school, or in your local community... Snap your shoes and share online through #walkinmyshoes... TEXT ‘ Shoes’ to 57802 to donate €2
