Charity of the Month - The Wildlife TrustsPrint
We’re delighted to be supporting The Wildlife Trusts as our charity of the month throughout September! During the month, you can round up your orders to the nearest £ at the checkout and all money raised will be donated to The Wildlife Trusts, a registered charity no. 207238.
We’ll also be matching donations so whatever you donate, we’ll donate the same amount, therefore doubling the total amount raised for the charity.
The Wildlife Trusts believe people are part of nature; everything we value ultimately comes from it and everything we do has an impact on it.
Wherever you are, Wildlife Trust people, places and projects are never far away, improving life for wildlife and people.
We believe that by working together, we can change the natural world for the better; everyone has a part to play.

Helping Hedgehogs this Autumn:
Autumn is an important time for Hedgehogs as they get ready for hibernation. This means surviving for many months without food or water while living off their own fat reserves that they build up in Autumn. As the season progresses, many people ask how they can help hedgehogs to build up their reserves ready for the winter months. Not only this, but hedgehogs also need a home to settle down into for the winter.
Help hedgehogs to get around by making holes and access points in fences and barriers to link up the gardens in your neighbourhood. Find out more here.
By providing safe places for hedgehogs to live, you’re much more likely to see these prickly creatures in your garden. Find information on how to build a hedgehog home here.
You can download a booklet which provides all the vital information about helping hedgehogs this Autumn here.

Throughout September we’re also offering our hedgehog knitting and crochet patterns as FREE to download as a PDF - Print at home pattern to raise awareness of this endangered species.
Throughout August we helped to support Hospice UK and raised an incredible £1,693 thanks to your checkout donations. Thank you so much to everyone who donated! We’ll also be matching your donations bringing the total raised for the charity to £3,386.
Hospices have been on the frontline of the battle with COVID-19, continuing to care for vulnerable people whilst also easing the burden on the NHS.
We need to make sure that we continue this momentum to improve end of life care for people across the UK. With your support, Hospice UK will continue to strive for that. Hospice care transforms lives. It is there for us through life, through death and through grief. Every year in the UK, hospices provide vital care to 225,000 people with terminal or life-limiting illnesses, as well as providing support for many of their loved ones. From managing someone's pain, to looking after their emotional, spiritual and social needs, hospice care supports the whole person, helping them to live their life to the full.
