STAFF at an Evesham building society are asking local residents to donate new pairs of socks and other items to help support homeless people.

Yorkshire Building Society is relaunching its month-long Socktober appeal throughout October in partnership with End Youth Homelessness (EYH) to raise awareness of World Homeless Day on Wednesday, October 10.

Donations of new pairs of socks, toiletries and interview clothes plus other items such as woolly hats, gloves, scarves, can be made at the Yorkshire Building Society, on Vine Street

Proprietor Andy Basford, said: “This is our second Socktober campaign and we are hoping to make it as sock-cessful as last year. Every single item will go to a homeless person.”
