Sock Puppets Raise £250

We are grateful for the efforts of Corinne & David Yates, who have been busy creating sock puppets in order to raise money for the Cystinosis Foundation UK. However, the pair have not only given up their time to create and sell these cheeky little creatures, but they pay for the raw materials, so 100% of the money raised goes straight to the Foundation.

"They make great toys for children but also adults seem to like them for their cars or desks." says Corinne, whose grandson Edward has Cystinosis. "They are all made out of one or a pair of new socks. Our contribution is that we pay for the socks, stuffing, etc and then make and sell them. Whatever anyone pays, 100% will go to the Cystinosis Foundation.".

So far the couple have raised £250 and intend to continue making the puppets! So if anyone else is interested in purchasing, or wish to help make the puppets, please do contact us.

There are various animals available from monkeys (shown below) to cats and "sock buddies".
