We are delighted to have the support from CBeebies star Andy Day, and his band Andy and the Odd Socks. The Andy and the Odd Socks team came up with the idea for Odd Socks Day with ABA in 2017 and have supported us with it ever since. We are so grateful for their continued support.
Andy Day is undoubtedly one of the most popular children’s personalities in the UK and widely known for his antics tackling dinosaurs, investigating baby animals and being on safari. At Glastonbury 2017, Andy launched his brand new rock 'n' roll band for kids, 'Andy and the Odd Socks'. Aimed at primary school children of all ages, Andy and the Odd Socks are all hugely individual and entertaining characters whose message to children is simple: be proud of who you are and be accepting of one another, in the words of one of the best known Odd Socks songs, be 'Unique'. We are delighted that Andy is a patron of the Anti-Bullying Alliance
Andy said to us:
We are over the moon to be working with the Anti Bullying Alliance again on such an incredibly important issue. Encouraging acceptance of individuality at an early age can help prevent bullying later in life and raising awareness on the issue of bullying is very important to us. Odd Socks Day is a fun day where we can do all of this! We would LOVE for your school to get on board!
Each year Andy and the Odd Socks write us a toe tapping song for Odd Socks Day that helps us bring the Anti-Bullying Week theme to life. You can watch all the videos below.
