THE horrific attack in Manchester last week has triggered influxes of generosity from unlikely places from the homeless to large corporations and now a luxury sock brand from Ammanford has joined in to show their support to the victims.

Corgi Hosiery, based on New Road, is currently working with the Sock Council to help raise funds for a variety of charities supporting the recent attack which occurred on May 22 at an Ariana Grande concert killing 22 people and injuring around 100 people.

A spokesperson for the Sock Council took to Facebook to say: “We’ve watched in horror like everyone else the terrible events in Manchester this week.

“Our deepest sympathies go out to all of those affected.

“We started the Sock Council following a visit to Manchester in 2011. We’ve made friends there, held events there, and after the attack we wanted to do something positive to try and help.

"We’ve been in touch with Corgi Hosiery and decided to do some Manchester Bee socks.

“All of the profits will be donated to the charitable efforts in aid of those affected by the attack.

“Corgi have been superb. They are putting the socks into production without delay, making a special effort and they have also reduced the price they are charging as their contribution.

"Credit to them for their support and kindness.

“We hope this gesture is taken in the spirit it’s intended. We just want to do something tangible.”

Corgi owner Chris Jones said: “Basically the day after the bombings I called our customer The Sock Council to discuss some new designs we are doing for them.

“We spoke about what had happened and he told me that his business is closely connected with Manchester, and he wished there was something he could do to help.

“I told him about some socks we had made for Welsh Air Ambulance, Combat Stress and Kidney Wales, making them at cost price so that they can sell them and raise good funds for charity, and he thought it was a great idea.

“He came up with the bee idea and we developed it into a sock, he is going to sell them with all profits going to the Manchester fund.”
