Ever fancied stepping into the shoes of Jess Ennis or Colin Jackson? Now you can with The Great Trainer Donation.

Celebrities from the world of sport and entertainment are showing their support for Mary’s Meals, by donating their famous footwear to an eBay charity auction on July 2.

Jess Ennis, Dame Kelly Holmes, Colin Jackson and Nell McAndrew are among those who have donated their favorite footwear. (Jess Ennis's signed shoes are pictured right.) Whilst we can't all clock the times of our sporting heroes, we can at least get our mitts on a piece of athletic history. 

Plus, you can splash the cash at the auction knowing it's going to support a great cause. All proceeds from the auction go straight to Mary’s Meals, a global charity which sets up school feeding projects in some of the poorest communities in the world. Mary’s Meals also is the official charity of the Tesco Great School Run
