Have your say

Shoppers turn to bright clothes when they’re feeling blue. And red is what 50 per cent of us splash out on to cheer ourselves up.

A recent survey by George at Asda revealed 68 per cent of shoppers spend up to £20 on clothes to brighten up their mood as well as their wardrobe.

Fiona Lambert, George brand director, says: “In challenging times people purchase bright colours across both fashion and beauty to lift their spirits. Customers have told us they want to be bold.”

George has launched a range of coloured denim jeans, from £10, available now in stores and on-line at www.george.com

Help a child with shoes

Kids grow out of shoes so quickly, they barely get chance to scuff the toes.

Every family home must have a hoard of hardly-worn children’s footwear, says the owner of a city shoe shop.

Anne Lee-Noble is appealing for shoes to be donated to a charity providing good quality used shoes to children in Kenya.

The Shoebox Children at 995 Ecclesall Road, Banner Cross has set up a collection point where customers can donate their used shoes for Shoe4Africa.

Providing barefoot children with shoes that cover their toes prevents them from contracting the parasitic disease hookworm.

A display in the shop shows where the shoes have gone.
