Metronomy Signed Shoes
At the end of the twentieth century Joseph Mount formed the electronic band Metronomy, and in 2014 Joseph took a small step by donating his shoes to the Small Steps Project.
The band generously donated again this year - a fab pair of white and cream, canvas Spring Court sneakers in a UK size 9. Metronomy was delighted to sign on the front and sides while at Glastonbury 2017 for their Sunday Night set at the John Peel stage.

Small Steps Project is a UK charity that wants to inspire everyone to take a small step, because together it is possible to make a difference.
From people volunteering their skills and attending their events, to companies donating their products and services, Small Steps raises funds that go to those who need it most. First, they provide emergency aid, shoes and food to children and communities living on municipal rubbish dumps around the world. Then they provide support for children to take steps into education, and adults into employment.
They deliver their projects in two phases. In the first phase they deliver emergency aid distribution projects, providing items that will protect people from the immediate dangers on rubbish dumps—from shoes, gloves and clothing to mosquito nets, food and water. This enables them to establish the demographics of the dump and devise and implement the second phase of sustainable projects that aims to reduce the time children spend on dumps and support them in taking small steps into education.
Small Steps Project makes documentary films and organises campaigns, such as Celebrity Shoe Auctions, to boost awareness and raise funds for this huge, but often overlooked, global situation.
