Laura Turney

Laura is mum to Rowan, nine and Fraser, eight. Laura spotted a pair of Rowans’ sparkly trainers on their new feet in an early consignment to Zambia and was delighted to be appointed one of the first trustees. Through her work in events, Laura sometimes travels and has been lucky to use these trips to deliver shoes to Brazil, Ivory Coast and Cambodia. To help with fundraising and raise awareness of the charity Laura ran 10k in bare feet and after a few glasses says she’ll progress to a marathon – watch this space.
