Jollie Goods

ArtForm: City Showcase Markets

Jollie Goods is a more-than-profit enterprise passionate about creating fun and tangible opportunities to support local homeless charities and care for those facing homelessness.

Jollie Goods was founded by Ed Vickers who, whilst a student at University, became frustrated when walking past the same people every day who were sleeping rough and not knowing how he could help. This frustration led him to help out at a homeless charity on Saturday mornings where he soon realised the serious demand for fresh pairs of socks. He saw how far a simple change of socks could go in looking after the foot health and hygiene of the visitors.

This clear need inspired him to think of a sustainable solution that not only provided socks to homeless charities but also engaged the every day person with a fun opportunity to do their bit to support those battling with homelessness. He founded the social enterprise “Jollie Goods” in 2012, with the intention of creating further fun and tangible ways to support the long-term work of local homeless charities.

We will be bringing our recently launched “Twister range” at the market as well as our limited edition Takuro x Jollie “support packs”.
