An opportunity to walk in the shoes of superstars to raise money for a cancer charity was a complete success thanks to the help of a mum from Ilford.
Seema Sharma, 35, helped make the Cancer Research UK event at Leicester Square a success which featured the shoes of everyone from Gwyneth Paltrow to Wayne Rooney.
More than 30 pairs were donated to the event which allowed people to strut their stuff down a red carpet in the shoes of their favourite celebrity.
Seema was diagnosed with breast cancer the day before Diwali almost exactly three years ago.
She had to have a mastectomy and chemotherapy and made a YouTube video thanking her friends for their support which got more than 21,000 hits.
She is now working to raise awareness of cancer within Asian communities.
