Silly Socks for Solicitors Firm Raises £300 for Charity


28th March 2014

A day of wearing silly socks to work has seen Tayside solicitors and estate agents, Miller Hendry, raise just over £300 in aid of Down’s Syndrome Scotland.

Joining in with the funky footwork across their Dundee, Perth and Crieff offices and property shops, the team at Miller Hendry got involved by sporting a colourful array of socks to help raise awareness for the charity. The campaign, which was part of World Down’s Syndrome Awareness Day, was intended to embrace the fact that, no matter what they look like, they are all just socks at the end of the day - the same as humans are humans, regardless of whether they have 46 or 47 chromosomes.

Jen Phinn, works in the Dundee property shop for Miller Hendry and was responsible for getting the campaign off the ground. She commented:

“My twin nephews, Ollie and Cameron, have Down’s Syndrome and I became aware of the international campaign to raise awareness of the genetic condition and really wanted to get involved. I was really proud that Miller Hendry were happy to support the fundraising campaign.”
