Have a look below at some of the wonderful local businesses we work with
From the founders;
'We're proud that our dolls are made with natural, high-quality cotton because it's important to us that they're safe, soft and cuddly.
We're also super proud that every doll is lovingly handcrafted by incredible women artisans in Peru, providing them with a sustainable, fair trade income.
Our whole family is passionate about what we're doing and loves every doll we make. We sincerely hope you will too.
Since September 2015, we’re thrilled that your purchases have helped provide over 25 million meals to children in need!

'I have been creating luxury handmade chocolates now for at least 15 years and love every moment of the process.
This is especially because it not only makes me smile every day but also, I hope, you too!
I create all my chocolates in my bespoke chocolate studio in South Leicestershire by hand and in small batches. This artisan process also ensures that, with the beautiful, local ingredients I include in my recipes, every chocolate you taste and the flavours we explore together will be unique.
Founded by Family Friend Harvey Broadbent
'The fashion industry has become a topic of negativity over the past 20 years with the growth of fast fashion distributing quantity over quality.
The world can’t keep up with this pace bearing the side effects of mountains of waste, unethical labour and unnecessary harm to our environment.
So, we put sustainable practices at the core of our business. We only choose natural fabrics that have little impact on the environment and we only partner with clothing manufacturers that care about their employees and their impact, too. We like people with a positive outlook ;)'
First of all, it's funny. Lots of room for toilet jokes, which we love.
But really, we love toilet paper because for us, it's our way of making a difference. We started Who Gives A Crap when we learnt that 2.4 billion people don't have access to a toilet (now 2 billion – yay for progress!). That's roughly 40% of the global population and means that around 289,000 children under five die every year from diarrhoeal diseases caused by poor water and sanitation. That's almost 800 children per day, or one child every two minutes
We delivered our first product in March 2013 and have been thrilled to keep growing ever since. Not just because our toilet paper is gracing bathrooms across the country but also because we donate 50% of our profits to help build toilets and improve sanitation in the developing world.
Stand4 Socks started by this simple statement when founder Josh Turner said this amongst friends casually,
"A bold concept but when you stop and think about it, most of us wear socks, everyday.... and if each pair could have a positive impact, then why can't socks change the world?"
From that initial comment we have come along way. We have donated a pair of thick, anti bacterial socks for every pair purchased, and continue to do so.
We have now donated over 150,000 pairs of socks to vulnerable people in need.
We'd love to see you for some time to unwind, rest and restore.
We look forward to welcoming you soon
Eleanor and Neil
