We’re committed to use our experience to nurture the next generation of design talent and also to give back where we can, which is why every year, we’ll choose a local charity to support.
2015: Bath Foodbank
We started small in 2015, held a flash sale in September of that year, and donated 10% of all profits to Bath Foodbank. We raised over £600 for the charity which helps local people in crisis.
2016: Hop, Skip and Jump
We joined forces with friends, family and local volunteers to help transform the outside spaces over at Hop, Skip and Jump in Bristol over a sunny weekend in August. We were overwhelmed with the support over the course of the two days, and raised £1,885 to help give the sensory garden and facilities at the respite centre for children and young adults a much-needed overhaul.
2017: Bath Mind
The latter half of 2017 saw us fundraising for one of Bath Mind’s Greenlinks projects, which offers those feeling low or struggling with mental health issues, the opportunity to garden for leisure and pleasure in local green spaces. Our generous clients donated over £500 to fund improvement works at their allotment facilities, to which we added £1000. This has seen access to the allotment improve greatly through a new set of steps and accompanying handrail, and improvements made to the seating area here.
2018-19: First steps and Articulate
A grass roots charity deeply embedded within the community, First Steps work in close partnership with parents, professionals and the local community delivering services that enable families to develop positive, loving relationships with their children and support their continuing development.Our team member Helena ran the Bath Half 2019, raising over £600 for this amazing charity.
We have recently forged close links with Articulate, a not-for-profit organisation in Bath that brings people together through a shared love of arts and crafts. Keen to nurture a greater sense of community spirit, the charity offers a wealth of workshops and events in anything from painting to patchwork. It’s a pleasure to see the exquisite pieces they’ve up-cycled from our discontinued fabric books and remnants.
2020-21: Julian House
We have most recently partnered with Julian House, a charity that supports vulnerable and at-risk individuals, whether those experiencing homelessness, domestic abuse or in need of support after leaving prison. To date, we have raised over £2800 to support the invaluable work of this charity, through initiatives such as the Big Bath Sleep Out and more. We also started our own initiative to reach out to our clients and find a new lease of like for their used furniture, to be used in new accommodation provided by the charity to refugees and those experiencing homelessness.
