Charity Support

Every year we receive a large number of charity requests. We’d love to support each and every cause – but in a practical sense we’ve found that we can help the most when we pick a single national and a local charity to support each year. We send our nominated national charity a percentage of our sales every month. 


The national charity we support this year: Mental Health Foundation

The local charity we support this year: Haddington Pipe Band

We also donate to a number of small local charities and fundraising events every year. 

If you are interested in applying for next year's Charity of the Year or a fundraising event, please email us or post information about the charity, with details of any campaigns or events planned for next year, and confirmation that you could provide us with collection tins to the below address.

We will review each request on its merits, and, if all are in agreement and circumstances will permit, we will be glad to help your cause.
