Bata is donating a million pairs of shoes to health care workers, volunteers and their families – the frontliners who are fighting the COVID-19 pandemic with such courage and dedication every day. What an amazing act of kindness by Bata. And why is it doing it? Because it cares. It’s the selflessness of those people on the COVID-19 frontline who show vast courage and commitment every single day that has inspired the company’s global initiative to say ‘thanks’. 

As a leading shoe company, Bata feels responsible towards its stakeholders, which include the neighbourhoods in which it operates throughout many countries and regions. Therefore, the donation will affect countries in Europe, Latin America, Africa, Asia-Pacific and India, which is why the Bata Group has committed to donate a million pairs of shoes. 

“During these unprecedented times, Bata is committed to doing everything possible to ensure the health and safety of our employees and consumers, to continue to serve our consumers to the best of our ability, and to take meaningful action to help communities in need and those on the frontlines,” said Bata CEO Alexis Nasard. “Now more than ever we are committed to upholding our values and to improving the lives of our consumers, employees, suppliers, customers and communities.”

As part of the initiative, Bata’s Mornington store has opened its doors to nearby health and aged care workers who are offered the chance to stop by and collect their complimentary shoes. Bata is beyond excited to show its thanks and appreciation to those putting themselves on the frontline. It’s Bata’s hope that the small contribution can make a difference to each person who receives a pair of shoes. Its mission is to help as many health and aged care workers as possible. 

Before you head down to the Mornington store, however, please note that the team are trying their best to support each visitor and may not have your size – ranging from UK 3 to 15 – in your preferred style out of the nine on offer, pictured, and that it’s restricted to one pair of shoes per person. Customers must show their employee ID card to obtain their complimentary shoes, shop in store and adhere to social distancing rules while shopping in store. With a limited number of customers allowed in the store at one time, there has been a wait time of up to two-and-a-half hours, so Bata suggests arriving before 2.30pm to avoid missing out. The offer is available while stocks last, so make sure to check visit for up-to-date information. 

Bata Mornington is at 1158 Nepean Highway, Mornington. It’s open Monday to Friday 8.30am-5pm, Saturday 9am-5pm, and closed on Sunday.
