Hampshire sock fans called upon
Silly Sock Day is nearly one month away in Hampshire, with hosiery being the one demand of a local charity hoping to raise money for a good cause.

The county's division of the Autistic Society is calling upon residents and schools to swap their boring legwear for something a lot more interesting such as fun socks, in turn attracting attention to the thousands of people across the UK which are affected by the condition, the Southern Daily Echo reports.

On June 19th, schools, families and businesses will be out in force to wear anything on their feet providing it is stripy, crazy or novelty socks.

The charity is also putting on a fundraiser in Hedge End, running the event for the best part of the day with special drinks, refreshments and entertainment to sock it to autism.

Socks are also being used to show support for another good cause, the Border Counties Advertiser revealed, with the Save Our Community School campaign using the hosiery to highlight the amount of people dedicated to keeping Ysgol Pontfadog in the Ceiriog Valley from closing.
