Slip into silly socks for some serious fundraising.
And now's the time to dig them out, wear them and help raise money for Cancer Research Wales. Celebrities, including news reader Huw Edwards and rugby player Nigel Walker, have already donned their wackiest socks for the charity and they are now calling on you to do the same.
``The Silly Socks appeal is a fun way to raise serious money for an excellent cause,'' said a Cancer Research Wales spokesman.
``The philosophy of the charity is that every penny raised in Wales is spent in Wales.''
The Silly Socks appeal will be running throughout February and organisers are optimistic the month-long promotion will raise more than pounds 25,000.
The cash will be used to support pioneering research at laboratories across Wales including the Velindre Cancer Centre, Whitchurch, Cardiff.
Just choose a day in February to wear silly socks or odd socks to work or school and collect sponsorship from your family and friends, or just pay pounds 1 to Cancer Research Wales.
