TV star, Sarah-Jane Crawford, paid a special visit to Westfield Stratford City this morning to help launch a pop-up charity store.

The Xtra Factor presenter also donated a pair of her own shoes to the pop-up British Heart Foundation (BHF) shop, to help raise money.

The BHF shop will be open for four days at the busy shopping centre.

Sarah-Jane said: I’m thrilled to be helping out with such an exciting campaign. I’d like to encourage everyone in the local area to come down to the BHF pop-up shop to take a look at all the different shoes on offer.

“The money raised from the sale of these shoes will help to provide secondary schools in the UK with CPR kits so young people can learn vital lifesaving skills.”

The pop-up shop is part of Good Morning Britain’s Heels 4 Hearts campaign, supported by the British Heart Foundation.

So far, the campaign has raised more than £450,000 to the BHF, which will fund 430 CPR kits for secondary schools across the UK.

The Westfield store will be open until Sunday.
