Check out this article about the sock donations:
Seven creative youngsters from the Turtle class at Sheringham Woodfields School, on Holt Road, contacted 15 stars via Twitter asking for a donation of socks which will be turned into unique hand puppets and auctioned off.
A pair of socks was donated by Hannah Spearritt, formerly of pop band S Club 7 who comes from Gorleston, comedian Paul Whitehouse, magician Paul Daniels and Norfolk actor Terry Molloy who played Davros, creator of the Daleks in Doctor Who.
The fund-raiser with a difference for Woodfields School will be taking place between this Saturday and Tuesday, December 17.
Turtles class teacher Lucinda Abel said: “The children were doing a project on puppets and we thought why not make sock puppets and auction them off. I didn’t think we would get a response from the celebrities. I’m surprised. It was really nice to hear from them.
“We have had autographs and letters and the children are excited.”
Hannah Spearritt sent in an autograph with her pair of socks, which will also be auctioned off.
As well as the celebrity offerings, the children, aged between seven and 11, have customised their own socks and five of their pairs will be sold in the same auction.
