SILLY SOCK DAY IS BACK!  Wear your brightest, silliest socks for the day in return for a donation to Autism Anglia.

Last year Silly Sock Day raised an amazing £2,500 for Autism Anglia whilst also raising awareness and getting people talking about autism. By coming together each year during World Autism Acceptance Week we have shown that we can raise vital funds to support autistic people whilst having fun along the way.

Order your fundraising pack today and get your school, nursery, place of work, running club, scouts pack or choir, wearing their Silly Socks. The pack includes fundraising ideas, a poster, stickers to wear and a sponsorship form for you to make the most of day.

Working remotely doesn't need to spoilt the fun, simply challenge your colleagues to ‘who's wearing the silliest socks?’  with the big reveal being done online. Don't forget to ask your employer if they can match fund any fundraising you do as this really does make a difference!

We realise that Thursday 28th March might not work for everyone so we are happy for you to wear your Silly Socks on a day that suits you. We will of course accept donations throughout the year!

Below you will also find links to resources such as a word search, sock bunting, design your own sock templates and instructions on making a ‘Silly Socktopus’. There are also school assembly ideas and links to videos explaining autism to younger audiences.

We love to see your pictures so don’t forget to take a #sockselfie and tag us on Social Media @AutismAnglia and we'll share as many as we can.


Silly Sock Day is an important fundraising event for us - especially as so many events have been cancelled over the past two years. It has been an annual event for Autism Anglia since 2011, raising over £60,000 for our work and getting people talking about autism.

Please use the donation link below to send in your money or create your own JustGiving sponsorship page.  

You can also text  SILLYSOCKDAY 2 to 70470 to donate £2

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