Toyota Cheetahs and St Andrew's Combined School take hands in a special charity project

Oupa Mohoje and Mr Roland Rudd, Headmaster of Saint Andrews

Saint Andrew's Combined School in Bloemfontein launched the Your Shoes Project in conjunction with the Toyota Cheetahs this week.

The school received 6000 pairs of pre-loved shoes, trainers and boots from the Our Shoes Charity organisation based in Ireland. The shoes have been donated by children in Irish schools who want to provide footwear for children who don't have shoes.

"For three years now, we have brought in shoes from Ireland and have reached communities throughout Cape Town and Bloemfontein. The school's mission is to restore a sense of dignity and provide hope for children who don't have shoes." Said Roland Rudd, Headmaster of St Andrew's.

The Courier Guy went the extra mile and deserves a word of thanks for their assistance in delivering the neatly packaged shoes from Cape Town to Bloemfontein and Johannesburg.

The school has partnered with the Toyota Cheetahs, urging the Bloemfontein community to use this as an opportunity to spring-clean their cupboards at home and consider whether they are willing to donate pre-loved shoes. Shoes should be in good condition and will be donated to NPOs, charity organisations, orphanages, schools, and clubs that are in need.


Donors are encouraged to place a personalised note in every donated shoe so the recipient receives a message of encouragement. Shoes must be bound together by elastic bands, and a note must be placed in one of the shoes.

These shoes can be dropped off at the school's front office or at the reception in the Toyota Stadium (entrance in Kings Way).

Please encourage friends and family to join in this drive so that we can show our support for our community. Let's get shoes on our kids before we head into winter.
