Lots of Socks

Join us and take part in Lots of Socks 2020! 

What is Lots of Socks? 

Lots of socks is a fun initiative in the lead up to Down’s Syndrome Awareness Day on 21st March.

You can take part in your nursery, primary school, secondary school, workplace or local community group.

You can be as creative as you like with it, by creating your own sock themed activity or simply asking people to wear odd socks and donate a £1. We love to see your pictures for the day as well so be sure to send these in!

Why socks?

The concept of Lots of Socks started because chromosomes look like socks and people with Down’s syndrome have an extra chromosome!

Lots of Socks is acknowledged around the world as being associated with Down’s syndrome.
