Community invited to join in with festive feet fundraiser

Residents across the Aire and Wharfe valleys are being encouraged to take part in the Airedale Hospital charity's Christmas Sock Day next month.

On Friday 15th December, staff at the hospital are being invited to wear Christmas socks and make a small donation (£1 is suggested) to support the Airedale Hospital & Community Charity to make the holiday season a festive time for everyone.

And the fundraiser is open to any local residents, businesses, schools or community groups to take part in too.

You'll be able to share festive sock photos on the day on social media by using the hashtag #sockselfies and tagging @AiredaleCharity to become a "Sock Star".

Airedale Community Fundraiser, Laura Hepworth told us: “The majority of our staff here at the hospital have to wear uniforms, scrubs and lots of PPE - so wearing a Christmas jumper isn’t always possible.  But they can wear Christmas socks – so everyone can join in and get festive, whilst raising funds for such a good cause!” 

Airedale Hospital and Community Charity is the official charity of the Airedale Hospital NHS Trust. For more information about Christmas Sock Day, or to let the charity team know that you are taking part, email or call 01535 294870.
