What came first, the egg or the sock?
Supporters of Warracknabeal charity the Elli Martha Fund are encouraging Wimmera residents to put socks before Easter Eggs this month. They want people to consider buying a colourful pair of ‘Elli’ socks for an Easter gift rather than a chocolate egg.
Fund organiser Angie Cox said the concept was certainly a healthy idea.
“I know we all enjoy our chocolate and we always indulge a little too much at Easter time,” Mrs Cox said.
“But we are also a lot more conscious about our health and our shire’s obesity issues these days,” she said.
“Buying Elli socks would be a great substitute to Easter Eggs or bunnies and people would feel much better for it too.
“They would be not only supporting a great cause but looking after their health and keeping warm.”
All profits from ‘Elli’ socks go toward supporting the region’s families with a child in care at a Melbourne hospital or a health service that is hours away from their home.
