Get snap happy for Cbee­bie star

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE -

CBEEBIES star Andy Day will visit schools with the most cre­ative Odd Socks Day ideas.

Af­ter launch­ing the cam­paign in 2017, the pre­sen­ter wants this year’s event to be even big­ger.

A spokesman for the or­gan­is­ers said: “We would love schools to send us a photo or video that best cap­tures how they par­tic­i­pated in Odd Socks Day.”

You can post snaps or video footage on Twit­ter with the hash­tags #An­tiBul­ly­ingWeek and #Od­dSocks be­fore November 20.

Andy, who will pick the three best schools, told us: “Last year Odd Socks Day made a lot of the kids I met feel more pos­i­tive and will­ing to speak about things that were both­er­ing them.

“They started to feel stronger within them­selves, which was nice to see.

“A lot of par­ents got in touch and thanked us too. It helped open up a con­ver­sa­tion be­tween them and their chil­dren.

“Some of the kids had things like scars or birth­marks they had been self-con­scious about. But Odd Socks Day brought those is­sues out into the open and par­ents were so grate­ful for that.”

Last year’s Odd Socks Day raised £25,000.
