Put on your silly socks for Down Syndrome Awareness Week

Mar 18, 2019

Les Amis are encouraging Islanders to wear their funkiest combination of socks [next/this] week to raise awareness for those with Down Syndrome. The charity is supporting the Lots of Socks global campaign with an Odd Socks Day on Thursday, in celebration of World Down Syndrome Day.

The campaign asks supporters to wear their craziest combination of socks for the day, which could include wearing two pairs at a time, sequin socks, slipper socks or even a socks and sandals combination! The footwear fun day looks to raise awareness and celebrate the achievements of those with Down Syndrome, with the theme for 2019 being equal opportunities for all.

Les Amis and some of its residents will be displaying their glorious array of socks in town on Thursday, chatting to the public about the services the charity provides for those with Down Syndrome and other learning disabilities. They will also be snapping and sharing photos of people’s best efforts for Odd Socks Day.

Jason Loveless, Head of Support Services at Les Amis said: “Everyone owns a pair of fun socks so there’s no excuse for not taking part! We are excited to see how creative people will get with their socks this year, from running lucky dip sock draws, sock swaps or possibly even hosting a corporate silly sock run. What’s important is that everyone participates and that they let their socks do the talking in support of Down Syndrome Awareness week.”

The charity would love to see as many people and firms take part as possible, sending their photos through to Les Amis or using the hashtag #LotsofSocks to be part of the wider campaign.

Les Amis is the largest provider of respite and residential services on the Island. Their aim is to help those with learning disabilities achieve their goals in life with gentle support and care, ensuring that disability needn’t mean inability.
