British sock designer HJ Hall is proud to announce it is partnering with Leicester-based mental health and wellness charity, Lamp (Leicestershire Action for Mental Health Project). As part of Lamp’s walk for wellbeing campaign, HJ Hall will be donating 10 per cent of all sales from its ProTrek collection in July and August to Lamp, which provides free mental health advocacy and carer advice for the community of Leicester, Leicestershire, and Rutland.
With walking at the heart of the brand, HJ Hall’s specialty ProTrek socks are crafted by experts in hosiery with quality and care. Offering different styles for a range of activities – from light hikes to mountain climbing – the ProTrek range prioritises comfort and durability so ramblers can enjoy their walks and clear their minds. Each style boasts a reinforced heel and toe with arch support and ankle bracing so feet stay fully cushioned from countryside to mountain peak.
HJ Hall has been producing socks in Leicestershire since 1882 and, alongside Pantherella, has grown to become the largest independent sock manufacturer in the UK. Innovation, creativity and quality is at the core of all HJ Hall does – which is why the ProTrek range has been a great success.
Joint Managing Director at HJ Hall, Andrew Townsin, commented “We are delighted to be joining forces with Lamp, another local charity to our business here in Leicester. The heart of our brand has always been about celebrating the great outdoors and enjoying the natural surroundings. With this past year being a difficult year for many, we are delighted to be able to champion this and raise money for a such a fantastic cause.”
Founded in 1989, Lamp provides free mental health and wellbeing advice to its surrounding communities which has been especially crucial during the global pandemic.
Shaun Johnson, Chair of Lamp, stated “We are so excited to have HJ Hall on board as our charity partner for 2021. The pandemic had an unprecedented impact on people’s mental health and wellbeing, and demand for our services
has increased tenfold in the last year. We are so pleased to have the support of such an established, leading brand in the wellbeing sector and to see what our partnership can achieve in the coming months.”
HJ Hall’s ProTrek socks are available to purchase at www.hj.co.uk and selected stores, retailing from £10.50.
