Footie selfie   Footie selfie Charity flip flop

ECI's work is supported by the White Stuff Foundation. They are asking people to pop in to their local White Stuff shop and buy a pair of limited edition flip flops, the proceeds of which go directly to the shop’s local charity e.g. ECI!

The competition runs until the end of August, so there is still plenty of time to get involved and participate.
