our christmas sales are coming!Posted 12/10/2020
and we are RAISING money for dorset & somerset air ambulance
Well ‘the’ season is almost here! Our pop up sales at Christmas time are always the busiest and raise the most for charity, but what with this ‘situation’ we will be holding our sales online. Such a shame to be missing out on seeing people face to face - the sellers and the shoppers.
But fear not! We shall carry on promoting and supporting small businesses and shall tempt you away from the Mr Bezos of this world (frankly, he has enough money already). You might have seen people share the phrase that every time you buy from a small business they do a little happy dance. Well - it’s true! So let’s shop small this Christmas.
We have TWO sales coming up, with different sellers in each one. Click on our Events page to find out when they are and who’s taking part. What’s more, we are thrilled to be raising money for Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance via both sales. 10% of everything bought through the event will be donated by our lovely sellers and we hope to surpass all previous sales and give them loads and loads of money.
Did you know that air ambulance charities receive no direct funding from the Government or the National Lottery and rely on the generosity of the public for support? Their operational costs are over £5 million a year and the approximate cost per mission is £3,000.
They provide a Critical Care Team, consisting of at least a Doctor and Specialist Practitioner for each mission. The doctors are predominantly drawn from NHS Hospital Trusts across the region and the practitioners from the South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SWASFT).
No one can deny the importance of this charity and I think we all know someone who has had experience of their life saving work. They have been in my village twice this year alone.
So please do take a look at our sellers and when the sales are here (1st & 2nd November then 4th & 5th December) please do shop away! There will be lots of special offers such as discounts and free delivery PLUS of course 10% will be donated...
Thank you for your support.
Best wishes, Jess x
