Charities & Organisations

For each of the products which we sell, we make a donation to one of the charities and organisations which we have chosen to support. As well as the larger, better know charities we are also trying to help some of the smaller ones, which have to work extremely hard to find the funding they require to continue with their work. Below are some of the charities and organisations which we have already helped through donations and by promoting them on our website and through social media.
