Members of The Bigger Idea, Rob Syme and Stuart Minshaw with the mayor of Farnham.
A couple of months ago, we asked members of The Bigger Idea to identify an issue in their local community and come up with a creative idea to improve it. Stu and Rob, two students from Farnham, had noticed a divide in the town between the students and the locals.
The guys felt that this divide could easily be improved if the two sets of people got to know each other a little more and better understand their respective points of view. Their idea was based around the saying ‘You never really know someone until you walk a mile in their shoes’.
The pair had the great idea to bring this saying to life in the form of a fundraising walk for a local charity with everyone swapping footwear. Not only would the event bring the community together for a good cause, it would also be a lot of fun!
Here’s the resultant video, great work guys!
