Holy Socks in Kenya

Eddie McGaw

first went to Kenya in 2011 as part of #CelticFC charity group to work in the slum area of Nakuru.  

Eddie tells a little of his story: "After seeing how bad the conditions were I said I would go back every year to try and help out ,over the years the groups I have ran have done loads of stuff from building an extension to a dinner hall ,toilets ,running water, helping make dinners,buying 200 pairs of shoes, loads of clothes to all ages, visiting new borns in hospital and giving blankets and hats etc, fridges and freezers, toys to the kids, building houses in the dump site for families who have less than nothing, goalposts, swings, slide, climbing frames, painting and guttering. We even bought them chips and roast turkey in nov 2015  the first ever time they had chips and turkey!

The list could go on,,with your help and even a little help will go a long way and to the people of the slum area they need as much help as they can get, so thank you for taking time to read this and as I said any donation no matter what it is is gratefully received and put to good use in Nakuru.

Money raised will be used to help kids at the walk centre and St Jeromes orphanage as well as families in the dump site with repairing houses

Rallying with Holy Socks 2016

Just a few days to go until the start of the 2016 ARR Craib MSA Scottish Rally Championship so thought I'd just have a look through the archive at some of the designs that Jock Armstrong and Paula Swinscoe have worn to go Rallying with Holy Socks.

Jock's had a lot more pairs than Paula, but their first design on a rally together was  "How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news."  Isaiah 52,7  on the Snowman Rally two years ago. 

This is a design with a bit of a split personality.  It's now used for Psalm 121,1: "I will lift up my eyes to the Hills" and we're working on a variation  with higher "hills" for the Isaiah version. 

Last year Holy Socks gave Jock and Paula "The Parable of the Talents" and we're sure all those Talents on the socks, including the single hidden talent,  helped them win the event. Read all about it at Matthew 25, 23
