NO BUSINESS LIKE SHOEBUSINESS FOR DAME SHIRLEY BASSEY
Wales’ singing icon Dame Shirley Bassey is supporting Barnardo’s and asking women to put their best foot forward for the Barnardo’s Shoe Appeal. The Cardiff born diva has joined the mass shoe de-clutter event, aimed at encouraging women all over the UK to free themselves from their unworn or unloved shoes and help raise thousands for the most vulnerable children.
Dame Shirley, a Barnardo’s supporter, said: “Like most women I have shoes that I certainly don’t wear anymore. By giving them to the stock appeal, it’s given me the perfect chance to clear out my shoe rail, donate the forgotten footwear and support a great cause. I’m urging everybody to ‘step up’ for the Shoe Appeal and donate their shoes to Barnardo’s.”
The international singing star has donated ten pairs of her favorite footwear, including elegant Emporio Armani sandals, glamorous chunky cowboy boots, peep toe Stuart Weitzman shoes and vintage style TTxTT evening shoes. Six pairs of shoes including the Armani sandals are currently on sale in the Cardiff Albany Road store. Anyone wishing to purchase shoes and not able to visit the store should contact Alex Corsi or Connie Pretty on 029 2048 8513.
