Lots of Socks

Lots of Socks LogoThis year we had lots of school and companies from all over the country take part in Lots of Socks. Lots of socks is a fun initiative in the lead up to Down’s Syndrome Awareness Day on 21st March every year. Why socks? Well, 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 Ds.

We saw lots of great fundraising ideas this year including sponsored odd socks day, guess whose feet games and sock puppet making! We also received lots of pictures, which we are very thankful for! If you have any pictures of you or your school please send them in to us!
