This year we have chosen to support a cause very close to home. We have decided to support ‘Put a Sock in it’, a fundraising campaign inspired by our Manging Director’s thoughtful son, Alfie, to help the homeless. During a trip to Manchester for the day, Alfie saw a number of homeless people on the streets so decided to save some of his lunch to give to a homeless person nearby, but rather than doing that our Managing Director offered to buy a sandwich for Alfie to give away, which he did. This inspired Alfie to do something similar in his home town of Leeds so Put a Sock in it was created to enable Alfie to distribute food and clothing directly to the homeless in Leeds at weekends and here we are now!
Put A Sock in it has now officially partnered with St George’s Crypt, a Leeds-based charity that supports the homeless and vulnerable. We have so far donated £1,600 this Christmas, as well as donating clothing and other essentials to St George’s Crypt.
One Global also intends to donate a percentage of its profits to St George’s Crypt as well as organising fundraising events throughout 2019. Special thanks to Fat Media who have helped with our sock designs!
If you would like to contribute too then please follow the steps on where to donate.
