Sock Friday

Soctopus Stand: G92
Sock Friday
Family owned and operated Leicestershire based sock company Soctopus donate 4000 pairs of socks to homeless charities for Black Friday 2023.

Instead of giving discounts this year Soctopus decided to give something back to those who need it the most.
For every pair of socks sold in their 5 shops and website over Black Friday weekend, one pair of socks is being
donated to 4 different homeless charities.
Because of this donation, thousands of homeless people will have warmer feet this Christmas thanks to this
meaningful gesture.
Four thousand pairs of thermal socks are on their way to the chosen charities, which were selected with the
help from their store managers so that Soctopus could support local charities nationwide.
Among the charities to benefit are –

  • crisis.org.uk
  •  offthefence.org.uk
  • cambridgecyrenians.org.uk
  • oxfordshirehomelessmovement.org.uk

Soctopus co-founder Nick Starsmore from the companies base in Market Harborough said;
“With the weather getting colder we felt we could afford to show this act of generosity after having such a
great time in our shops this year. It’s important to us as a business to show that we care about vulnerable
people in our local communities.”
Soctopus is clearly spreading its tentacles to tremendous effect! 

Soctopus has shops in Brighton (The Lanes), Oxford ( Covered Market), Cambridge (Sidney Street), Edinburgh
(The Royal Mile) and York (Low Petergate)
