School socks are something we always need for our kids.
White socks are required uniform for school, but with the red sand and dust, they don't stay white for long. Everything is laundered every day, but again drying in the hot sun takes its toll on fabrics.
So it is a real bonus to know a parcel of socks donated by children and babywear specialists, Mothercare is on its way.
Ann Summers (pictured) who lives in Oxfordshire wrote to the retailer on our behalf and they very kindly sent her all these socks.
Many thanks to Ann and to Mothercare - just as soon as the arrive we'll post pictures to let you know.
