A group of 171 schoolchildren have received brand new shoes and socks just in time for winter. Children at Mangere East’s Sutton Park School were each given a pair of shoes and two pairs of socks thanks to KidsCan Shoes for Kids programme. The Flight Centre Foundation helped deliver them.

KidsCan started supporting Sutton Park School in March so kids now get food, raincoats,shoes and socks, basic healthcare and hygiene support. KidsCan supports 544 low decile schools around the country.
