Dr Martens has donated 150 pairs of boots and shoes to BHT’s First Base Day Centre.

The British boot and shoe label has made the donation to help men and women who are homeless in Brighton and Hove to protect their feet. Dr Marten have opened a new store in Brighton at 15b Prince Albert Street, Brighton.

Claudine CohenWe cannot thank Dr. Marten enough for their generous donation of shoes and boots. Rough Sleepers are so often affected by problems with their feet due to excessive walking, sleeping out in damp conditions and lack of access to adequate footwear.

A brand new pair of boots or shoes can make such a difference.
