New Zealanders don red socks for charity
Following his untimely demise, Sir Peter Blake has left a legwear legacy for his fellow New Zealanders to follow.

Donning red socks in remembrance as part of a reference to good luck in the sailing world, people taking part will go to beaches and streams to clean them up and enhance the safety of seaside areas.

Vicki Watson, the general manager of the Sir Peter Blake Trust, said that it was encouraging to see so many people willing to wear the hosiery in his honour, adding that the marine environment was "one of Sir Peter's greatest passions".

She continued: "Every small step counts and the main thing is that students will take this knowledge with them and we hope they will be empowered to keep making a difference later in life."

The Sir Peter Blake Trust raises money for the marine environment through a number of other methods, such as with charity clothing and bottled water.
