Stomp-mania sweeps the country!

An army of fanatical stompers are hitting schools, shops and work-places near you in their funkiest
and most fantastic footwear. And it’s in the best of good causes! Impossible to miss this new breed
of charity fundraiser, even the uninitiated will have little trouble in spotting our stomping Spurgeons’

But for those of you who like to keep ahead of all the latest social phenomena, here are some top-
tips to help identify a Spurgeons Stomper:
     1) Dazzling good-looks and youthful charm.
     2) An aura of well-being (that comes from doing something to help others).
     3) A devil-may-care attitude that belies a deeply compassionate nature.
     4) Stompy footwear that ranges from the subtle and sophisticated to the rip-roaringly
     5) Many will be accessorising stompy shoes with a full-on caterpillar costume...

These dedicated do-gooders are using their fantastic feet to make a better life for vulnerable
children in the UK. And you could join them!
