The donation by Mossop Western Leathers (MWL) was made through the Moms for Wellington non-profit organisation, which helps children from the surrounding areas’ underprivileged communities with early childhood development, a feeding scheme and preparing them for school.
‘‘The beneficiary this year is Moms for Wellington, whose main focus is to care, feed and teach around 160 children between the ages of three and six.
‘‘As they have children on their way to primary school at the end of each year, we thought it’s a good idea to donate Bronx school shoes.
“These genuine leather shoes offer excellent quality and durability.
‘‘We’re thrilled that 83 learners will start this important new chapter in their lives with a decent pair of school shoes.”
Kruger said their company believes in supporting organisations in the community in which it operates and that their company contributes annually to deserving causes, especially those involved with the young people in Wellington and surrounding areas.
Bolton Footwear head of group marketing Stuart Hopwood said they were delighted to be involved, even if it was in a small way.
