Putting their best foot forward

HAPPY FEET: The Her Majesty Project is collecting stilettos for pupils at Zola Secondary School to wear to their matric ball. HAPPY FEET: The Her Majesty Project is collecting stilettos for pupils at Zola Secondary School to wear to their matric ball.

Grade 12 pupils at a Khayelitsha school will be kicking up their heels at their matric ball thanks to a group of Public Relations students. 

The group of ten BTech students are collecting high-heeled shoes for pupils at Zola Secondary School to don at their year-end ball.

“We needed to come up with a practical campaign for our finals. The cause is something we all could relate to, and we started the Her Majesty campaign. It forms part of the larger Restoring Soles 2 Souls project,” said student Nadine Dirks.

Restoring Soles 2 Souls collects and redistributes new and gently-worn shoes to impoverished communities in South Africa.

Nadine said the group had already collected several pairs of shoes, but we're hoping to receive a few more before handing over the shoes to the school on 20 September.

Anyone who would like to donate can contact her on +27 78 758 6530.
