Swanstaff Recruitment launch winter homeless charity appeal
The award winning recruitment company who have 20 branches nationwide launched their “Swan Socks” appeal on Friday 9th October. They were inspired by a statistic they read which revealed that socks are one of the most needed and least donated items to homeless shelters and charities.
They plan to distribute the socks collected through charities nationwide including Coffee for Craig, Canterbury Homeless Outreach and Simon’s Community Project.
Ellie Lewis, head of marketing, said, “Here at Swanstaff we are passionate about doing our bit for charity, whether that’s through fundraising, taking part in events or raising awareness of causes. When we heard that homeless charities desperately need socks we knew it was a simple way to support the excellent work they do.”
“Having a clean pair of socks is vital for someone living on the streets as it can prevent trench foot and infections as well as provide a barrier from the cold during the winter months, which can even save lives.”
