When Angus College marketing director Kay Gilmour launched the One Step Beyond campaign last year, she didn't expect that among those donating foot wear would be an international superstar.
However, Elton contributed a pair of red suede platform shoes.
A statement received from the vocalist with his shoes reads, ''I am delighted to offer my support for the One Step Beyond campaign and hope a lot of support is given to this initiative which aims to do a lot of good work for important charities.''
Most of the shoes are being redistributed via a local recycling company to places where they are most needed, such as Asia and Africa.
The celebrity and designer items will be auctioned off, with extra funds going to the campaigns chosen charitiesNo More Landmines Trust, Children In Need, Cancer Research and the Angus College Charitable Trust.
Kay told EJW she expects the event to take place on eBay at the end of the month.
