- Proceeds being donated to North East Homeless -
Purchasing our beautiful gift wrap option for your handmade gift/sample boxes will not only provide the perfect finishing touches, but will also enable us to donate food, essential items, and funds to local charity North East Homeless.
In light of the government's recent refusal to continue providing free meals to vulnerable and impoverished children during the school holidays we wanted to join the hundreds of other local businesses in helping our local community, and the children of the North East in food poverty, during these trying times. Since we are not in the catering or food industry ourselves and therefore unable to provide meals for the children that way, we decided to start charging a small fee for our gift wrapping service and using the profits to help those who are providing free meals and in turn helping those in need.
North East Homeless have pledged that kids can eat for free at their headquarters and cafe The Fish Quay Hub in North Shields, not just during school holidays, but on any day that a family might find themselves struggling.
The child food poverty crisis is not the only reason we chose to support North East Homeless. They also provide essential items and hot meals to the homeless people of Newcastle, including Christmas dinners on Christmas Eve. For more information about the charity visit their website www.northeasthomeless.org.uk
You can also make a donation without purchasing anything from us, add the gift wrap to your basket and select 'free collection' before you check out and we will donate the full £1.50 on your behalf if it is the only item in your order.
Thanks in advance for supporting this!
