We are please to announce that we are continuing to support Amy’s Care for the next year.
Last year we raised £800 for the charity and then asked our customers who to support for 2019. We were not over suprised when our customers suggested we stick with Amy’s Care.
Amy’s Care provides day care and specialises for people who have dementia. This small charity is based out of Ireby and offers care in Keswick two days a week. Keswick is a small community and so most of our customers know people who have benefited from the great service provided by Fraser and his team at Amy’s.
We’ve not decided on what fund raising ideas to do this year – but when we do we will let you know (but suggestions are always welcome!!)
This year Amy’s Care has been our chosen charity for 2018 and we are pleased that we have raised £800.
The final donation of £350
to the charity was raised in a variety of ways during December. Amanda and
Grace who work in the shop designed and created some Charity Christmas Cards,
then when they unveiled their Keswick Live Advent window they had a raffle which
just added to the funds raised by a ‘Jambola’ on Victorian Fayre
Alexandra said ‘We have loved supporting and raising awareness for such a great local charity. Throughout the year we have been amazing by the generosity and loyalty of our customers who have supported all of the events we have hosted. We are also in awe of Fraser’s enthusiasm and his personal drive to enable Amy’s Care to provide such a great service to our community’
