Shoe firm makes donation to charity
HOTTER shoe company opened its Skelmersdale factory last month to the international non-profit Soles4Souls, donating 1,000 pairs of shoes to help create opportunities for people in need across the globe.
Eleven student volunteers with the organisation visited the UK’s biggest shoemaker to see the high-tech footwear production in action before picking and packing 1,000 pairs of Hotter shoes, which will be distributed to Soles4Souls’ micro-enterprise programmess, that create jobs in developing countries.
“We were delighted to bring these young people into our factory to show them how our people craft our shoes,” said Hotter chief executive, Sara Prowse.
“There is so much technology and precision engineering involved in creating a pair of shoes which delivers the perfect fit.”
Soles4Souls’ director of Global Partnerships, Mackenzie Moore, commented: “We are so grateful for Hotter’s partnership with our organisation.
“For our student volunteers to be able to see both how the shoes are made, and then how they can impact people living in poverty, is really special.”
