Outrageous socks were sported by the public yesterday in a show for support for an autism charity.

Tomorrow’s Voices has already raised $3,000 from donations and the sale of the wacky socks through its store on the Sargasso Sea app as part of its Autism Rocks Socks Day.

Stacy Hill, the funding and development officer at Tomorrow’s Voices, said: “We hold this fundraiser every year in April which is Autism Awareness Month, to bring awareness about autism and to support the charity.

“We ask people to tag themselves in social media posts wearing their outrageous socks and to make a $2 or $5 donation or more if they want.”

Ms Hill added: “All the money goes to the charity which is an early intervention centre facilitating children who have been diagnosed with autism and other developmental disabilities.”

She said she took part by wearing bright monster socks with stars and made a donation.

Ms Hill added members of the public were welcome to continue to post pictures of their socks on social media, tagging Tomorrow’s Voices as #autismrockssocks and @tomorrowsvoices.

The photos will appear on the charity’s Facebook page.

The charity was set up to give one-on-one therapy to its clients and that $20 would pay for an hour of treatment.
