The Jubilee shoes that are owned by Gary Barlow, of Take That fame, have been donated to a charity and they are going to auction the shoes off in order to raise funds.
The charity is the Horder Centre and they will be selling the Union Jack styled shoes with the lyrics of the Jubilee song inscribed on the sole.
The shoes are going to be sold on eBay next week and the charity have been releasing a great deal of information about the shoes in order to raise interest for the sale. Barlow has recently written the song for the Jubilee and for his efforts he was rewarded with an OBE.
The eBay auction is raising funds for the leading orthopaedic charity The Horder Centre. You can also bid on shoes donated by stars from the world of showbiz and sport, including DJ Norman Cook, tennis star Ana Ivanovic, Olympic ice skating gold medallist Jayne Torvill, ex-England and Bath rugby captain Lewis Moody, singer and TV presenter Kim Wilde, authors Sophie Kinsella and Peter James, much-loved Forces’ sweetheart Dame Vera Lynn and TV weathergirl Kaddy Lee-Preston.
“It’s great to have a megastar like Gary donating to the auction and supporting The Horder Centre. I have no doubt his Jubilee shoes will attract great interest from his millions of fans.”
The money raised will help create several new woodland trails in the grounds of The Horder Centre in Crowborough, East Sussex. One of the trails will be adapted for the disabled and another will have outdoor gym equipment and both will be open, not only to patients, but to local schools and the community.
Anyone wanting information about the auction can follow it on the Horder Centre Twitter page @thehordercentre or a special Facebook page that has been set at http://www.facebook.com/The. Horder.Centre
