Pull your socks up to raise money for Dogs Trust!

'Tis the season to think about presents, but it's also a time to spend cautiously. How about a way you could get a cute stocking filler, spend just a little and help a charity continue its work at the same time?

Here's the solution - Dogs Trust socks. They're a lovely bright yellow (look: exciting facts about yellow!) and come in two varieties: the standard sock (pictured) and the longer, thicker, warmer wellie / boot sock. Both are available in a variety of men's and women's sizes.

Yes, I have a pair of the standard variety. Let me rephrase that: I had a pair until my husband-to-be nicked them about 45 minutes after I got home and has worn them regularly ever since.

Best of all, standard socks are just £2 and wellie socks are just £5, with 25% of the proceeds going directly to help dogs in our 17 Rehoming Centres. Thanks solely to the generosity of our supporters, since Dogs Trust receives no government funding, we were able to help over 16,000 dogs last year. So your little bit of Christmas giving fun would also translate into some happily wagging tails.

Wear your support with pride, and happy shopping!

I LOVE the socks! I posted about this on our blog: I am wondering, can the socks be ordered by people in the USA? I'd love to have some...

Hi there Emily,

Thanks so much for posting about this and for your enthusiasm!

You can indeed order Worldwide, although the postage might be a bit higher.
