Shane Warne Signed Shoes
Shane Warne is an Australian former International Cricketer widely regarded as one of the best bowlers in the history of the game. This is the third time Shane has donated his shoes to the Small Steps auction.
This year Shane has donated a pair of Dryjoys Casual that he brought to us in his own Tesco bag! The shoes are a UK size 10.
Last year Shane told us: “I wore these runners during a couple of training sessions in Australia because they’re a good, comfy pair! I’m donating these shoes to raise much needed funds for the Small Steps Project." And in 2012, he donated the Sparco racing boots that he wore when he “very first learned how to drive a Lamborghini.”

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.
