Shoes for Kids at Linwood North School, Christchurch
Our CEO Julie Chapman (nee Helson) was among sponsors who gave shoes out to Linwood North School in Christchurch yesterday. 25 children were presented with a pair of black shoes and two pairs of socks. QBE, a sponsor of KidsCan also presented the children with 3 large bags of sports equipment. The school lost a third of its roll after the February 2011 earthquake and now has 125 pupils, down from 184. The shoes were greatly received by the kids.
