James and Lianne from Monkey Sox say thanks, and don’t forget to get your Christmas socks!
Hi everyone, and a very Merry Purple Christmas to all.
It’s been a tough year for so many and so we wanted to share some thanks and happy news with a little update from Monkey Sox.
During the pandemic, we have been so grateful for the support of so many regular and new customers. We have remained open, selling socks online and, despite all the cancelled markets and events, we were proud to donate our target amount to multiple sclerosis (MS) charities for our second year of business.
This takes the total donation to MS charities from sales of Monkey Sox to £11,530! For those of you not aware, we donate 50% of profits equally to three MS charities, of which the fantastic MS-UK are one.
Included in this was the sale of 64 pairs of our special #TeamPurple socks for MS-UK sports events, a design we are very proud of that matches the MS-UK kit.
Of these, we donate £5 from every pair exclusively to MS-UK, and we absolutely love seeing your photos of the socks in action. It’s testimony to the incredible community of fundraisers at MS-UK as you have all taken part in so many personal and virtual challenges this year. Amazing efforts! We can’t wait for the group events to begin again in 2021.
We know the team at MS-UK have been working tirelessly during lockdown too, and the new services they are offering for both counselling and exercise across the country is really a big achievement. We are proud to be in touch with, and supporting, a team dedicated to making a difference to the lives of people living with MS.
Everyone knows that socks are great gifts at Christmas, so if you would like to support them, we have many designs in both leisure and sports socks, and not forgetting little monkeys with our kids’ range! Please go to www.monkeysox.org, and as a thank you we are giving all MS-UK readers free postage on any order with code MSUKFREE until 31.12.20.
Please keep in touch. We hope to meet many more of you in 2021, and we wish you all the very best as we enter the New Year.
Speak to you soon!
James and Lianne
