Christmas Sock Day

You’ve heard of Christmas jumper day, but not all superheroes wear jumpers.  Yes, the superheroes working at Airedale Hospital often have to wear uniforms or scrubs to allow them to look after our patients. No matter what we wear or do though we all have one thing in common, especially in the winter – socks!

We are delighted to let you know that last years Christmas sock day was a huge sock-cess so we’ve decided to hold another one and it is bigger than ever.  On Friday 15 December our superhero team will be wearing their favourite Christmas socks and they would love for you to join them.  It’s simple: pick your socks (they can be super Christmassy or just fancy), wear them to school or work — or even just around the house — and donate £1 if you are able, to help us care for the Airedale community.

Who will be our ‘Sock Star’ of 2023? Send us your #SockSelfies or tag us into your social media posts!

To donate, text Sock to 70480 or donate through our JustGiving page here.

For more information, catch us on social media or give us a call; we would love to tell you about our socks!

Please let us know you are taking part by emailing or calling our Charity office at 01535 294870.
