Brantano Calls for Unworn Shoes for Charity

I've got something a bit different for you guys today and something to get you into the spirit of giving in the run up to Christmas.  Shoe retailer Brantano , located at Filton Abbey Wood in Bristol, will be pulling its socks up and donating shoes to charity throughout November as it launches its latest campaign.

Primark black velvet top // Topshop denim skirt // H&M pointed boots Halloween may be over but I can't help wearing all black for the rest of eternity.
