Successful launch day for our 2018 chosen charity – Amy’s Care

Today we held a coffee and cake day to mark that we have chosen Amy’s Care as our local charity for 2018.

Amanda and Melissa have been busy making cakes and we raised over £100 from our lovely customers in donations for the cake.

We were really pleased that Susan Leighton our Town Mayor came along and supported our day!

Amy’s Care – our 2018 charity

We are pleased to announce that we have chosen Amy’s Care to be our nominated charity for 2018.   Every year we raise money for a host of different good causes but this year we decided to support one for the whole year.

As a local independent shop we wanted to support a local charity.In our December newsletter we included a little survey of our shortlisted local charities and Amy’s Care won!

Amy’s Care is based in Ireby and specialises in providing day care through their Social Clubs and holidays for older adults and inparticular for those living with dementia.  They believe that providing a stimulating and engaging environment that promotes inclusion leading to a fulfilled life.

Yesterday we met with Fraser from Amy’s Care and we are starting to plan out our calendar of events for the year.

We are starting with a ‘launch’ on Wednesday 31st January at our shop in Packhorse Court.  When you are all more than welcome to pop down for tea and cake!    It will be a great opportunity for you to find out more about the good cause as well as see our lovely new collections which are arriving for Spring 2018!

Happy Socks

We are proud to be new stockists of Happy Socks!

Happy Socks are unisex and come in two sizes 4-7 and 7.5 to 11  We sell them individually or in gift sets.

It is a lovely Sweedish brand which was started by two friends with a simple vision: to spread happiness by turning an everyday essential into a colorful design piece with a rigid standard of ultimate quality, craftsmanship and creativity.   We love their goal which is to “provide you with the best and happiest products around.”

Happy Socks ensures that its suppliers have high standards by keeping close contact with all of them through regular visits and controls at all their factories. A meticulous care for detail allows Happy Socks to maintain and constantly develop its production processes and the product quality.

Happy Socks pays close attention to the production of its collections and only uses the best materials and the sharpest designs for its socks and underwear. All products are durable but they last longer if they are washed inside out and kept out of the tumble dryer.

We hope to put them on our website but for now they are only available in our store.
