We are so honoured to have the very handsome actor James Purefoy as our celebrity Ambassador. Over the years James has been a massive support to our charity, he has come to our events, featured in our documentary and inspired many of his celebrity friends to take a small steps and donate their shoes. Thanks to James, famed for his role as Mark Anthony in Rome, we have had shoe donations from Sienna Miller, Rachel Weisz, Eva Green, Sharleen Spiteri, Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick. This year he has asked many of his co-stars from ‘The Following’ to take part including Shawn Ashmore from X-men, Valorie Curry from Twighlight and of course Kevin Bacon from pretty much everything.
James explains what made him become our celebrity ambassador, “What Small Steps have achieved in their releatively brief existence is akin to a minor, but very beautiful, miracle. They have turned lives around. They are the embodiment of that lovely phrase ‘Be the change you want to see in the world’. I am proud and humbled to be associated with them.”
