Mirren & Firth donate shoes to charity auction

The stars have joined the likes of Julie Walters, Russell Brand, Rachel Weisz, Ricky Gervais and Liam Gallagher by handing over their footwear to the Small Steps Project.

The shoes will be sold off at the London Celebrity Shoe Auction in October (11) at The Royal Society of Medicine to benefit children in poverty who live on rubbish dumps across the world.

Firth has donated a pair of his loafers and written a note to go alongside them which reads, “My old loafers, my best to the feet that find them!”

Other celebrities who have given their shoes to the cause include Simon Pegg, Ralph Fiennes, Jamie Lee Curtis, and singers Anastacia, Boy George, David Gray and Eliza Doolittle.
