How would you sort on a field defined as varchar(30) that stores dates (for ex: 01/01/2010) in SQL Server 2005 ?

I am trying to write a SQL statement to sort records in a table named tblDailyDeliver that has 2 fields.

The first field is OfficeNumber defined as nvarchar(4)
The second field is TodaysDate defined as varchar(30)

How would you write a SELECT statement to retrieve all records in table tblDailyDeliver by sorting on the field TodaysDate in DESC order that stores dates (for ex: 01/01/2010) while using SQL Server 2005 ?
