Shoe Zone donates £20,000 to National Emergency Trust

Footwear retailer, Shoe Zone, have announced a number of ways it is supporting the National Emergency Trust Coronavirus Appeal, including a £20,000 donation made earlier this month.

As  stores are currently closed, the retailer have introduced a new option on both their UK and Ireland websites which allow shoppers to round their orders up to the nearest pound. The ‘spare change’ from this is then donated to the appeal. 

The company has included a banner that links to the National Emergencies Trust on their website and have included links on their social announcements for customers looking to do their  bit.

Donations to the appeal can be made here.

Charles Smith, chairman of Shoe Zone, said: “Over the past month, we’ve seen a huge amount of generosity from businesses and the public, as everyone comes together during this difficult time.

“We felt it was more important than ever to show our support for those most vulnerable in our society by donating £20,000 to the National Emergencies Trust Coronavirus Appeal.

“Our stores may be shut for now, but online we are encouraging people, where possible, to round up their orders to help further support the Appeal.”
