Charity Donations via Work for Good

"Being part" of and "taking part" in our wonderful UK community is very important to us. Therefore we have teamed up with Work for Good. Work for Good is a platform that make it easier for smaller businesses like ours, to donate a proportion of their sales to charity.

Starting 1st April 2021, we will be donating 2% of all sales to Make-A-Wish via Work for Good. Make-A-Wish are a children’s charity that make wishes come true for sick and critically ill children, because ‘a child’s life shouldn’t be about illness, hospitals and diagnosis – it should be about wonder, joy, and hope.’ We couldn’t agree more.

We are starting at 2% to ensure that this is a sustainable amount that we can continue to contribute long term. This is considerably more than some larger retailers, such as Amazon Smile (0.5%) or retailers who ask their customers to donate at checkout.

We are linking our donation to sales because

  • It is visible to our customers and staff
  • It helps to raise awareness of the charity being supported
  • It will hopefully inspire other donations to the charity

Linking our donation to sales is much simpler than donating a proportion of the profit we make. It also ensures that we are compliant with the Charities Act. In reality, the proportion of profit being donated is much higher than 2%.
