SILENT BID FOR GREAT ORMOND STREET CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL
SOCK MONKEYS FOR CHARITY
We were excited to run a silent auction in partnership with British icons in aid of Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital.
This charitable fundraise was inspired by the ‘Great Britons’ legacy photograph which was unveiled in honour of the Queen’s 90th birthday year. This unique image, littered with stars from all walks of life, was created by renowned photographer Alistair Morrison.
The silent auction offered participants the ability to bid to win a one-of-a-kind signed London Sock Company sock monkey accompanied by a polaroid photograph of their chosen celebrity with the exclusive prize.
PULL YOUR SOCKS UP
OUR SOCIAL AMBITION
Our ‘Pull Your Socks Up’ campaign is the social focus of our business and something we have been passionate about since launching London Sock Co.
‘Pulling your socks up’ is one of the first things you do each day, so we wanted this to serve as a reminder to do something good each day – no matter how busy we are that had a positive impact on others.
If you would like to help or get involved at all, please get in touch – we would love to hear from you.
THE HOUSE OF ST BARNABAS
HELPING LONDON’S HOMELESS
It has been a humbling experience getting to know the amazing team at The House of St Barnabas.
The House of St Barnabas, offers an Employment Academy, helping London’s homeless get back into paid employment over a 12 week course focused on increasing confidence, self worth and arming the participants with hospitality training along side their partner Benugo. Invaluable community support is also provided in the 12 months that follow with individual mentorship programmes.
It has been a privilege to support such a worthy endeavor with colourful socks given to all Employment Academy participants as they progress into the working world. The feedback from participants about an added confidence boost experienced when pulling their socks up puts a daily smile on our faces.
DONATING SOCKS TO LONDON’S HOMELESS
Every month we try and take an evening to hand out warm socks to London’s homeless. This is simply a case of the LSC team walking around with rucksacks filled with socks. As quality as our socks are, we do feel a thicker alternative is better suited.
We have also teamed up with CRISIS donating thousands of pairs to those in need.
We donate a large quantity of luxury sock gift boxes to help raise vital funds through charity auctions, hosted at annual fundraising dinners and other fundraising occasions.
Although we can’t support every request, we always do what we can.
STYLE FOR SOLDIERS
DAVID GANDY GIFT SETS
We are proud that 10% of all sales of David Gandy’s sock gift sets are going to support Style For Soldiers, a British Forces charity that David is patron of.
The charity is run by London clothing brand founder, Emma Willis and is supported by other brands including Marks & Spencer and Mr Porter.
Thousands of British service personnel are injured during conflict, effecting both their emotional and physical wellbeing.
Style For Soldiers exists to help support rehabilitation, aspiring to rebuild confidence through style and fashion.
