Colourful socks and plenty of them were out in full force at one primary school recently.
Thurrock School in Basildon raised £115 for St Luke's Hospice by donning patterned socks and bright legwear
on a special crazy socks
day, reports the Echo.
Pupils at the school did not just keep their hosiery
on their feet, they also modelled knee-high socks
and ankle socks
on their hands and in their hair.
The event was organised by year six students Courtney Osborne and Ciara Brand.
Commenting on the success of the day, Ciara told the newspaper: "All the children loved it, as all the socks
added lots of colour to the uniform."
Meanwhile, one father is planning to wear odd socks
during an upcoming fund-raising walk.
The Birmingham Mail reports that John Bill of Dorridge will complete the 30-mile challenge in memory of his late son and is sporting odd legwear
to remind people of his son's sense of humour.
