We’ve watched in horror like everyone else the terrible events in Manchester this week. Our deepest sympathies go out to all of those affected.
We started the BSFC/Sock Council following a visit to Manchester in 2011, meeting Wrighty the co-founder, and Macca for a pint, and after a trip to Oi Polloi to buy socks. We’ve made friends there, held events there, and after this week’s attack we wanted to do something positive to try and help. So, we’ve been in touch with one of our suppliers, Corgi Hosiery, and decided to do some Manchester Bee socks.
All of the profits will be donated to the charitable efforts in aid of those affected by the attack. Corgi have been superb, they are putting the socks into production without delay, making a special effort, and they have also reduced the price they are charging as their contribution, credit to them for their support and kindness, good people. We hope this gesture is taken in the spirit it’s intended, we just want to do something tangible. We’ll keep you informed of developments and final designs, as well as a release date of course.
Peace & love, Reuven x
