Having postponed Silly Sock Day from April we are giving you the opportunity to take part on Friday 23rd October instead.  We know that fundraising might not be top of everyone's agenda at this time but the cancellation of the event in April hugely affected our fundraising so we're encouraging people to take part now if they wish. We plan to go bigger and better next Spring so if now is not the right time for you then please watch this space!  

  • Why not get craftyand create your very own Silly Socks? How creative and inventive can you or your children get with the textiles, recycling and art and crafts you have at home?
  • Make sock puppets or download our ‘Silly Soctopus’ from the resources on our website and have your very own puppet show! Another way to entertain the children whilst they are at home.
  • Challenge your family, or remote work colleagues, to ‘who's wearing the silliest socks?’ - the big reveal can be done via Facetime/Skype/Zoom
  • Use our online resources to do some sock related activities. You can even hold your own assembly/presentation with our Power Point, suitable for children of all ages.
  • Do your daily exercise/dog walk in your Silly Socks

Whatever you get up to we would love to see your pictures using the hashtags #sillysockday #sockselfie #autismanglia on Social Media. We'll share as many as we can. 

Of course it's not just autism awareness we're after - Silly Sock Day is still an important fundraising event for us - especially at this difficult time when so many other events are being cancelled.  Please use the Just Giving link below to donate or create your own family/work or individual sponsorship page.  

We do however appreciate that fundraising for us is not likely to be top of your priorities at the moment so we encourage you to join us next Spring or hold it on another date that is convenient - you could even have a Festive Sock Day near Christmas instead!   We will be happy to accept your donations all the year through.

We look forward to hearing your plans and seeing your Silly Sock Day photos – whenever you may hold your event - so please do keep us informed. We always love hearing from you.

Many thanks again for your continued support.

Please note that we will not be able to send out any more Fundraising Packs until we return to normal office hours.
