A SHOE shop has started up a ‘new-for-old’ scheme which sees recycled shoes sent to third world countries, a donation made to charity and a voucher for customers.

Brantano will donate 20p to Tommy’s for every pair of shoes handed in, to help fund the charity’s research into pregnancy complications such as miscarriage, premature birth and stillbirth.

Store manager, Stephen Castle, said: “Anyone that’s had a complication in pregnancy will know how valuable Tommy’s is, and the work they do in helping more people to have healthy babies is so important.

“By handing over your shoes to Brantano stores you can help the charity’s research into pregnancy complications.

“As well as helping a fantastic charity you get a voucher for new shoes too.”

The scheme runs until March 25.
