The Sherlock star's loafers achieved ?�4,501 ($5,608), a substantially higher sum than the ?�2,250 ($2,738) paid for his sequined Louis Vuittons in 2014.  

Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood's signed high-tops made ?�2,801 ($3,490) and Emma Watson's Sergio Rossi stilettos sold for ?�2,700 ($3,364).

The proceeds will go to help adults and children living on rubbish dumps around the world.

The charity's founder and CEO, Amy Hanson, says: "These celebrity donors are really using their status to help create awareness for children in poverty, the most famous A-listers in the world have proven that they are not too big to take a small step to support our small charity."
