no limits appeal single sockSouthampton youth charity No Limits has launched a Christmas Socks appeal, which will see individuals, organisations, local schools and colleges get involved with wearing festive socks to raise money for vulnerable young people across the city.


The week runs from Monday, December 11 to Sunday December 17 for supporters to wear their festive socks, share a message of support and give a donation.

As the lead partner for the appeal, members of staff at White Stuff, Southampton will be wearing their festive socks during Christmas Socks Week, doing cake bakes and other in-store activities all to raise much needed funds for the charity.

Rianna Vlierboom, from White Stuff, said: “We are proud to continue to support No Limits and the work they do in Southampton. We are very excited to get involved in their Christmas campaign this year, and we will also be running a number of charity events in the store throughout December for our customers to get involved with”.

Local schools and colleges will also be getting involved with Christmas Socks Week by holding dress down days, decorating Christmas socks and by sharing messages of support for a young person in need.

All money raised from the appeal will go towards supporting local children and young people who are facing homelessness, anxiety, depression, abuse and poverty.

If you’d like to make a donation, you can text XWSG17 and the amount you would like to donate to 70070.
