Charity of the Month - Renew Counselling

By Vanessa 2 months ago

We’re delighted to be supporting Renew Counselling as our charity of the month throughout August!

During the month, you can round up your orders to the nearest £1 at the checkout and all money raised will be donated to Renew Counselling, registered charity in England (1084940). We’ll again be matching all donations so whatever you donate, we’ll donate the same, doubling the total amount raised for the charity.

About Renew Counselling:

Renew Counselling provide high quality, effective and affordable counselling to help people face whatever life throws at them, to support those most vulnerable in our community - this includes children, young people, adults, couples and more.

Renew recognise the importance of providing a wide range of high-quality counselling and therapy services. Their goal is to ensure that everybody has access to counselling services should they need them. The pandemic has had a detrimental impact on many people's mental health and despite lockdown causing difficulties, Renew have continued to provide support to all those that need it.
