Gaudio Designs Trophy for Sport Relief Sock Sliding Challenge!
Pineapple Dance Studios star, Louie Spence, has recreated Tom Cruise’s classic scene from ‘Risky Business’ – but with a Sport Relief Twist. The Dancing on Ice judge has been snapped pulling the pose whilst wearing the new, official, Sport Relief Socks in a bid to launch Sainsbury’s Sock Sliding Championship this week.
Louie stated: “Pull on a fabulous pair of Sport Relief socks and not only will you be supporting a great cause and raising money for Sport Relief, you can slide your way to the title of Sock Sliding Champion.”
As a long-term partner of Sport Relief, Sainsbury’s always pulls out all the stops to raise much-needed cash. And this year is set to be no different. Sainsbury’s is challenging the nation to set a new world record – the longest distance for a sock slide!
The longest slide from each of the eight Sainsbury's stores around the UK will win a £100 gift card, as well as the specially designed Sock Sliding Champion Trophy as made by Gaudio!
Sock sliders will have three attempts to record the longest continuous slide along a specially designed floor ruler to set a new world record. The challenge is open to anyone who purchases a pair of Sport Relief Socks available at Sainsbury's.
Talking about the chance to raise money for great causes whilst having fun, Louie stated: "Pull on a fabulous pair of Sport Relief socks and not only will you be supporting a great cause and raising money for Sport Relief, you can slide your way to the title of Sock Sliding Champion. Take your moment to shine - be creative, be original and leave the other contenders for dust!"
