Happy Shoesday

Happy Shoesday is taking place on Tuesday 22 May 2018. 

Children and grown-ups alike love taking part in our one-day fundraising event. Why?

Because not only does it remind everyone about the adventures you can experience on your walk to school, but it highlights the many benefits that active travel brings to children, their schools and the local community. 

Lowered congestion, lower air pollution levels, safer roads and a whole lot of happy, healthy children who arrive fit, refreshed and ready to learn!
