1st April

In these challenging times, an exciting venture was launched to turn your purchases into support for our community.

We joined up with BrilliantLittleBrands a curated collection of fabulous small businesses, with the commitment to make a 10% donation when customers provided a charity code at the checkout.  In this way, since April 2020 we have collectively raised over £14,000in support of an incredible range of causes through our monthly fairs.

Each month, there will be a BLB virtual fair and when you enter the fair code at the checkout, we donate 10% to that charity, so you can shop, save and give!


You can use the unique fair code, or simply the code ‘BLB’ to make a donation to the current charity appeal when you checkout.  Alternatively, please add the name of the charity you would like your 10% donation to go towards and we will honour that.


Many small businesses attend charity fairs throughout the year but with all of these events now cancelled for the foreseeable future, along with many other fundraising sources, this has put enormous pressure on the survival of charities and the extensive services they provide.  Your support will therefore help us to continue the work that these charities do!

Each month we will advertise the charity and the fair code on our Instagram page here

Together, we will come through this pandemic and emerge with incredible stories of how we sustained each other and our communities through multiple new initiatives and bridges.

For a selection of small businesses, one exciting new bridge is Brilliant Little Brands.  Come and join us.
