This year we wanted to support those facing a challenging Christmas, so we set out to offer you the ability to donate a gift to those in need, whilst shopping for Christmas presents.
We were delighted to launch our 'Act of Giving' campaign. For every beauty bag bought between 23rd November and 1st December, on our website, we donated a bag to cancer charity, Something To Look Forward To, who provide people suffering with cancer and their families access to donated gifts and experiences.
We are so pleased to have been able to donate so many bags to the charity and we could not have done this without your support, so thank you so much.
Thanks to your incredible generosity we were able to make a bumper delivery of donated beauty bags to Fiona, the founder of Something To Look Forward To.
Fiona and her team worked unbelievably hard to distribute our donated Victoria Green beauty bags to those undergoing treatment for cancer, just in time for Christmas. They went all acrossthe country, delivering bags in person, to various hospitals and hospices.
“This Christmas, which also marks our second birthday, we have done something a bit different. We have delivered the donated Victoria Green beauty bags to people undergoing active treatment.” (Fiona Coldron, Founding Director of Something To Look Forward To)
Local press in Bedfordshire even heard about our campaign with Something To Look Forward and The Biggleswade Chronicle came along to cover the story: ‘Beauty bags help patients at St John’s Hospice’.
Thank you so much to all of our customers for supporting us, and in turn supporting the work that Something To Look Forward To has done this Christmas. We are so thrilled to have had such an amazing response, with people contacting us to tell us how happy they were to be able to give to others.
If you know someone affected by cancer, then take a look at Something To Look Forward To's 'Find a Gift' search.
Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!
Love Victoria x
