Sole-warming Christmas gift for the homeless

Written by Fiona

December 02 2021

A Buy One Gift One campaign has been launched again by outdoors store Ellis Brigham. For every purchase of a pair of Smartwool Socks, Ellis Brigham will gift a pair to one of our four UK homeless charities: Barnabus in Manchester; and Spitalfields Crypt Trust, The Connection and Caritas Anchor House in London.

The offer is until December 24 and includes all Smartwool socks sold. Ellis Brigham pledges to give 500 pairs of socks.

An estimated 280,000 people are homeless in the UK and the numbers are increasing after a very difficult few years living through a pandemic.

Smartwool socks make great stocking filler gifts and if you buy a pair for a friend or relative, you will also be giving to someone else who needs a pair of warm, high quality socks.

Last year, Ellis Brigham customers gifted 500 pairs of socks to the homeless. See Smartwool socks to make your purchase.
