We have some exciting new shoes to add to our Celebrity Shoe Auction!
Make sure you take part 8th July – 15th July 2012 and bid for your favourite pair.
We have managed to secure shoes from famous authors, sports stars and local celebrities and will be auctioning the exciting selection of shoes in a week long auction starting on 8th July 2012 on eBay. All money raised will create several new woodland trails which will be built in the hospital grounds. One of the trails will be adapted for the disabled and another will have outdoor gym equipment and both will be open, not only to patients, but to local schools and the community. For further updates please follow us on Twitter @thehordercentre or contact our Fundraising team on 01892 665577.
