Jessie J will auction a pair of sparkly shoes for charity.
The 25-year-old singer will give away the flat laced footwear – which she bought from high street retailer Topshop and wore at the Cavern Club in Liverpool, England – and a signed picture, during a gala ball this Saturday (16.11.13) to help raise money for the Little Princess Trust.
The charity provides real-hair wigs for children across the UK and Ireland that have lost their own hair through cancer treatment and they are delighted to have Jessie’s support.
Charity manager Monica Glass said: “The shoes are wild, they are so glitzy.
“Jessie has obviously worn them because there’s a bit of wear and tear on the heel. I imagine she performed in them because they are glitter encrusted.”
“She’s signed both the insoles and sent us a signed photo in which she is holding the shoes a bit like bunny ears.”
“It’s great Jessie is raising our profile so we can help more children.”
Jessie has previously shown her support for the charity when she donated her hair to the Little Princess Trust after it was shaved off to raise money for Comic Relief in March .
The charity hopes it will help children regain their confidence after they have battled the life-threatening disease.
Monica told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “It takes three to five hair donations to make one wig. Jessie’s braids are locked away in our safe and will be matched with a similar hair colour.”
“The wigs make children looks like they did before the diagnosis – they feel happier, brighter and more confident.“
