STAND OUT SOCKS

a very special partnership

Burnley FC in the Community have teamed up with Stand out socks in order to commemorate Down Syndrome Awareness Day!  

Together with children from Pendle Community High School and Stand Out Socks, we’ve designed a special pair of Burnley FC socks.

These socks are available for purchase at the Burnley FC shop. For every pair sold, all proceeds will directly fund sports sessions for individuals with Down’s Syndrome in and around Burnley.

When describing Stand Out Socks their founders say that “Our socks are more than just fashionable accessories; they are the catalysts for meaningful conversations about disability inclusion and serve as a beacon of awareness for Down Syndrome.”

On March 12th, Josh Brownhill, cousin of Stand Out Socks founders Christian and Ross, along with Jack Cork, joined Burnley FC in the Community and Stand Out Socks for the sock launch at Holly Grove Primary School, where the BFCitC operates its Limitless Clarets School Project.

The players participated in a range of activities with the children, including Jack Cork’s demonstration of crafting paper airplanes. Ross and Christian engaged the children in a conversation about World Down Syndrome Awareness Day, underlining the significance of offering employment opportunities to all individuals, irrespective of disabilities.
