a few of the amazing people and their causes who inspire us daily and that we've been lucky enough to be involved with
Pink Week Cambridge University fundraiser
A week of events raising funds for and awareness of breast cancer. Charities include Breast Cancer Care, Hello Beautiful & The Haven. Last year Pink Week raised an amazing £24,000 and this year the organisers hope to raise even more! We donated over 6000 of our delish bottles of Choc Shot to help Olivia (herself a student and 22 year old cancer survivor) with her brilliant and inspiring fundraising efforts.
We sent lots of Choc Shot to the lovely people at Mornflake to drizzle over this amazing cake to raise money for Macmillan. The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s main fundraising event for people facing cancer. Last year alone they raised a staggering £25 million. We also donated lots of our fabulous Fruit Syrup to our own Macmillan coffee morning here in Victoria, London.
The Magical Taxi Tour is a wonderful charity whose mission is to give sick children a three-day break from therapy and treatment in Disneyland Resort Paris. The kids are transported in a convoy of London taxis and the families would not be able to undertake such a trip alone, without the medical support the London Ambulance Service (plus many others). We were thrilled to be a sponsor this year, and Co-founder Deborah's husband was the volunteer driver (great job Gary!) His passengers were little Jack (5) and mum Janet who spend a lot of time in the Renal Unit at Birmingham Hospital.
Farplace is a no kill animal rescue centre in Westgate, County Durham helping animals who are sick and injured.
We've been donating samples, attending events and giving away products for raffle prizes to help support their efforts. Farplacehelp thousands of animals in need every year. Do check out their 'animals for adoption' page if you have any spare room!
A non-profit fundraising organisation that works hard to raise funds for continuing research into finding a cure for Type 1 Diabetes, specifically the JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) who are pioneering research into a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. Since 2007 the main event in the Pop 4 Diabetes calendar has been the 'Pop 4 Diabetes Annual Ball' which started at the Haven Hotel in Sandbanks. We are proud to have helped them with their fundraising efforts.
We were thrilled to support Breast Cancer Care with their Pink Ribbon Walk by providing Choc Shot at the finish line. Breast Cancer care combines the personal experiences of people affected by breast cancer with clinical expertise to provide information on living with, and beyond breast cancer, offering both emotional and practical support and a Helpline to bring people affected by breast cancer together.
Blind Veterans UK believe that no one who has served their country should battle blindness alone. They offer help with lifelong practical and emotional support for Armed Forces and National Service veterans helping them recover their independence and have a good quality of life beyond sight loss. The 100k challenge is an annual walk from London to Brighton! Congratulations to all the amazing finishers, we hope you enjoyed your Choc Shot!
