The Mayor of Wisbech will be taking part in a sponsored charity walk next month (August) wearing high heels around the route.
The ‘walk a mile in their shoes’ event, runs by the Ferry Project, in aid of domestic violence support.
Participants will walk a mile around Wisbech park on Sunday August 8 at 1:30pm in each other’s shoes to highlight their stance against domestic abuse.
Men will wear heeled shoes while women wear a trouser suit and tie with flat shoes.
The Mayor of Wisbech, Cllr Andrew Lynn, said: “I will be joining Keith Smith and others in walking a mile around Wisbech park.
“Please do support us if you’re there.
“No one should suffer this inhuman act.”
