Back in March we decided to sell off old stock, samples, seconds and discontinued lined in aid of the charity Shelterbox
The sale - which took place over 2 days - raised £1200, enough to sponsor 2 shelterboxes and yesterday I got a letter thanking us for the donation and giving me the tracking numbers for the boxes.
The boxes are ready to be deployed and their numbers are UK0062018 and UK0062019 if you would like to be able to track where your money went.
In fact we have been so impressed with the work that Shelterbox does, both in the field and in their efforts to involve children in charity, through Young Shelterbox, that I have decided to make Shelterbox Snapdragon's charity of the year.
All the money that we can make on the side of the business, through selling our samples and seconds, through donations, through opening up the studio, giving talks or demonstrations - will go to Shelterbox in the hope of helping in some small way.
Today I have been tidying up the workshop and have put together a big box of bargain bits that will be on sale in our Airstream shop, alongside the rest of our stock, from 2nd June.
