Dr. Martens Staff and Friends Sale 2019
April 27th, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm
It’s amazing how quickly an activity can start to feel like a tradition. The Dr. Martens Staff and Friends Sale took place again on April 27th at the Dr. Martens Cobbs Lane site.
The marquee went up the Friday before to reports of windy weather and storm clouds. The pallets of overs and end of season stock began arriving at the new yet to open 2nd Made In England Factory a day earlier.
Through Friday Night and into Saturday Morning volunteers from all areas of DMs came together to sort the pallets, display the goods, marshal the crowds and take the donations for another village shaking Sale.
With queues starting at 6am and 950 guests on the list a sum of ten thousand pounds was raised for Footwear Friends by 1pm. Boots, backpacks, shoes and T-Shirts from all over the range were sold in their thousands.
Counting out the money in the safe room the reports came back that the day was a roaring success as the last of the left overs were packed up for donations to the homeless.
The warm wishes and little extras people were willing to put in the tins came as fast as the customers when people leaned of Footwear Friends and the good work they do for ‘those who walked this path before us’.
