Helping the NHS

At this deeply challenging time we have chosen to donate 5% of our profits from all sales to a number of different causes. In an ever changing situation we are donating to help brilliant initiatives across the UK.

The Excel Academy Partnership, whose staff are volunteering their time to make much needed PPE equipment for our NHS heroes. We have also donated to St. Anne’s Food bank, Nottingham.

We are currently supporting the amazing staff working on several Covid19 wards around the country by donating to them packs of Rituals Hand Balm and Lotion. We wanted to show our appreciation for the work those hands are doing. Just taking a moment out for a little self care can go a long way. If you are working on a Covid ward or know someone who is, please let us know when you place your order. We would love to treat you and your colleagues.

In addition, any firebowls purchased by or for an NHS worker will include a free gift. These heroes are protecting the nation, so it is the least we can do.

We recognise that we are providing people with a really good reason to stay home and stay safe. Our family has been enjoying going out for pizza – to the wood fired pizza oven in our garden, one of favourite accessories. We have also been out for delicious Indian and Mexican meals. Our garden restaurant has become so versatile with our firebowl at the heart of it. Being warmed by the flames as the evening chills, gives us a much appreciated extended time outside. When we go back in the house, it actually feels like we have been somewhere.

Make your lockdown the best it can be with the knowledge that your purchase has provided a little bit of extra help for our marvellous medical teams around the UK.

The Sambhali Trust

We also support the Sambhali Trust which is a non-profit organisation focused on the development of empowerment of marginalised women and girls in Rajasthan. Earlier this year, our eldest daughter worked at their centre in Jodhpur, teaching women and children at the Abhaya Women Empowerment and Primary Education Centre. She is now working with a Specialist Leader of Education in the UK to devise an improved and enriched curriculum for local staff and volunteers to follow.

As part of our work, we are helping to fund a new centre in Setrawa where the children are being given the opportunity to receive an education and a nourishing meal every day. Please follow the link to find out about this inspirational charity.
