Helping Homeless people keep warm this winter
Today we launch the SOX APPEAL campaign for the homeless in Oxford.
Did you hear us this morning on BBC Oxford radio? If not please listen to the clip below.
We are asking for donations of new socks, that we can give to the homeless of Oxford, through our partnership with Oxford The Gatehouse .
Homeless clients experience great discomfort from wet and damp shoes/socks. Their feet are often painful and are vulnerable to fungal infections, bacteria infections, trench foot and amputation. At Zest where we are all podiatrists, we are very aware of the problems experienced and are keen to offer our help.
Throughout the year we provide free (organised through Forgotten Feet) podiatry care at The Gatehouse in St Giles Church. This happens every 6 weeks where we see around 20 clients. After each podiatry treatment they are very appreciative of new socks that they can pop onto their newly treated feet.
Please download sox appeal oxford marketing for your school or organisation and use the tag #soxappealoxford.
Donations can we sent to us by post or dropped to our clinic, they need to be received by Friday 20th December.
