The Swan Socks campaign for the homeless ended yesterday and the target of 500 pairs of socks was smashed – with a massive 938 pairs collected!
Donations poured in from Swanstaff employees, local schools, community organisations and businesses to help us collect a phenomenal number of socks.
The socks will now be distributed amongst a number of charities across the UK including Catching Lives and Canterbury Outreach Project in Kent, Beacon House in Colchester, Simon Community in London and Coffee for Craig in Manchester.
Managing Director Steve said “The socks campaign has been a great success and is a great achievement. It has really shown the passion of our employees and their ability to involve people from outside the organisation to support a great cause”.
Emily from Cambridge Homeless Outreach Team said “A big thank you to you and all your staff. It may only seem like a little thing but a little kindness goes a long way with homeless people”
