Shoe Zone Trust

 

Michael, Anthony and Charles Smith established the Shoe Zone Trust on 1st January 2005 as a registered charity (No. 1112972) with the aim of helping disadvantaged children both in the United Kingdom and internationally.

 

All the money donated to charity by the company is disbursed via the trust. The income of the trust is donated from the profits of Shoe Zone Retail Limited.

 

"This is a very exciting addition to all that has been happening in the last few years at Shoe Zone. We have always wanted this business to be a place where the employees can say they do more than just sell shoes!"

 

To date we have allocated over £200,000.  Below is a selection of how the money has been spent:
