The great sock give away

Hi All,

Well I'm back from my little break with grandma and granddad and it was fab. I was going to tell you about it but I've got other things to say!

Remember I said I don't like seems in my socks or anything yukky like that. Well the cool people that work at The Sock Shop found my blog and sent me some more! How cool is that! I think you should all go and by some because they are really comfy! Dad said I should put this bit in though that Katrina at The Sock Shop said about their seemless socks:

I just wanted to let you know that on the site we refer to our seamless toe socks as ‘hand linked toe socks’. What this means is that the seam has been created by linking the stitches of the two sides together with one thread, which creates a comfortable, flat seam.

We call it this so it doesn’t cause confusion for our customers - so they know that while there is still a seam there, it is flat and much more comfortable, and essentially the sock feels like its seamless.

I can tell you they are really comfy. So go buy some. Or you could win a selection of socks from here! Yes you heard it, you could win some this week from here. Along with my socks they also were really nice and sent a mixture of other boys and girls socks. So I'm going to give them away to 2 lucky winners.

This week and next week. If you donate I'll put your name in the hat to win them. Dad says we are going to use a thing called Random Picker to draw who wins! This week I'm giving away boy socks.

So just donate all this week and then put a comment on here and then on Sunday after 1pm I'll announce the lucky winner.

Dad says I've also got to say that you need to make sure that you do not claim gift aid if you are entering the competition as that's what the just giving rules are. And you need to be in the UK because I haven't got enough pocket money to send anywhere else.

So just to say again. If you donate this week to my Just Giving page up until Sunday at 1pm I will add you in to win some boys socks from The Sock Shop.

Here's just one of the pairs!

So good luck everyone and get donating!!!


  1. My goodness Lewis, this blog is fabulous!

  3. Hello Lewis!

    My friend Tracy-Lihanne sent me here and i'm SO glad she did! My 7 year old son has autism, so it's something very close to my heart. You're doing a fantastic job of writing - I thought someone much older was creating these posts - you should look in to writing for a living :)

    Keep going and good luck!
