Day 15: Lost Property

Day 15 (or maybe Day 4, 8, 16, 23 or 42) of the 365-day charity trainer challenge in aid of Alzheimer’s Research UK, in which I aim to wear a different pair of trainers every day in 2014…

• P1030206

Picked this natty pair – with their intriguing pattern – in a charity shop run by a mysterious woman called Eloise. She said they’s been on the shelves since at least 1974, though they looked brand new, almost as if they’d been through a time warp.

There’s even a name inside; must remember to Google it one day…

• P1030242

Got to make it brief today as I seem to be stalked by a polar bear and a heavy smoker. Just enough time to mention that we’re nearly at the £300 mark in the total pledged, which is great and I appreciate wholeheartedly every donation made so far. But remember, every £20 I raise will pay for an hour of vital research, bringing Alzheimer’s Research UK closer to finding ways to diagnose, prevent, treat and cure Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

• P1030210

Usual sign off:

Current total: £280  (many thanks for the pledges yesterday!)

• Remember this is all for charity, so any pennies or pounds you can spare PLEASE DONATE BY CLICKING HERE.

• Follow me on Twitter to make sure you see what trainers I’m wearing each day.

• Please, please, please leave comments below! I’m after ideas for mini-challenges, future photoshoots and how I can find enough pairs of trainers!
