All you need to do is wear odd socks! It’s a great way to celebrate what makes us all unique in Anti-Bullying Week! Odd Socks Day is being held on Monday 14th November this year. Odd Socks Day is delivered in partnership with CBeebies and CBBC star Andy Day and his band, Andy and the Odd Socks.

What is Odd Socks Day?

Odd Socks Day marks the start of Anti-Bullying Week. In 2022 it will take place on Monday 14th November. We have everything you need to celebrate what makes us all unique and spread kindness! Odd Socks Day 2022 is supported by cBeebies presenter and ABA patron Andy Day and his band ‘Andy and the Odd Socks’.

Most importantly, Odd Socks Day is designed to be fun! It’s an opportunity to encourage people to express themselves and celebrate their individuality and what makes us all unique!

There is no pressure to wear the latest fashion or to buy expensive costumes.  All you have to do to take part is wear odd socks to your school, at work of at home, it couldn’t be simpler!  Odd Socks day will take place on the first day of Anti-Bullying Week each year to help raise awareness of bullying. We would like to invite participating schools and workplaces to ask participants to make a £1 donation – or any donation you think appropriate – to support us in continuing to coordinate the week every year.

You do not have to raise money to take part – the most important thing is the message of Odd Socks Day – and any money raised for us is a bonus! Make sure you encourage other schools in your local area to get involved!

In 2021 over 5 million children, 1,000s of parents, 100s of workplaces and lots of celebrities and influencers got involved. We even had Ant and Dec, Emma Willis, Brian May, Craig David, Sir Mo Farah and Annamarie donning their odd socks! Don’t miss out highlighting the important issue of bullying in such a fun way.
