Hey Girls products will be available in 80 Waitrose stores and 265 ASDA stores across Britain from 13 August, with charities and organisations local to these shops benefitting directly through each sale.

For every pair of Stand4Socks purchased from its homeless collection, another pair of thick durable socks is given to a homeless person. The social enterprise also supports other causes through its sock collections, including gender equality, where one pair provides 12 hours in a safe house for example, and landmines, where every pair sold makes a square metre of land safe.
Thanks to our customers and Buy One, Give one, we were delighted to donate new clothing to @SharewearNotts a unique charity combatting clothing poverty in the UK. Please check out the fantastic work they do.#mondaymotivation #InternationalFriendshipDay pic.twitter.com/aqalPwsHok
