This year our fab Frugi customers have been supporting three amazing causes though our charity project...
We are now half way through our charity year and have made mid-way donations of over £50,000! This amount is set to double by the end of our charity year in June..!
Our donation to The Cornwall Wildlife Trust is a super duper £13,234! This will help support the Trust's Living seas programme.
Ruth Williams, Marine Conservation Manager at The Cornwall Wildlife Trust, tells us what the donation means to the charity...
“Frugi’s latest donation to Cornwall Wildlife Trust’s Living Seas programme is simply amazing! I am humbled by the support Frugi’s fantastic customers has given to help us better protect our seas and the wonderful wildlife that lives in, on and under the waves. It shows how important the seas are to so many people, and we at Cornwall Wildlife Trust will do our utmost to put this valuable funding to best use. It will be spent on helping to protect dolphins from being caught in fishing nets; to monitor some of our weird and wonderful wildlife like the spiny lobster which seems to be making a comeback after decades of decline, as well as working with local communities and young people to help them reduce their use of plastics and clean up their local beaches. With Frugi’s help, we really can make a difference! Thank you!”
Our mid-way donation to Chance for Childhood is an AMAZING £19.621.29!!
Our project with Chance for childhood funds the running costs for a children's nursery in a slum area of Accra, Ghana.
Anna-Mai Andrew, Chance for Childhood CEO, comments;
“We are over the moon and so touched by the amazing contribution from Frugi and its wonderful customers! This incredible generosity will be a tremendous help to our Kinbu nursery for street children in Accra, Ghana’s capital. Providing young children with a safe, loving environment away from the streets, Pre-school education and nutritious meals wouldn’t be possible without Frugi. Meda w’ase [thank you]!!”
Our community charity Little Lifesavers are training children in choking and vital lifesaving skills through schools and community groups all around the UK.
Our donation of £16,515.42 will help the charity to set up new groups throughout the UK, providing them with essential equipment and support.
Kieran Moon, Trustee of Little Life Savers told us;
“The half way donation from Frugi means so much to Little Life Savers. It means that we can fund new groups and grow existing groups by purchasing training materials such as mannekins, certificates and T-shirts and teach more children essential life saving skills. 2019 will be an exciting year for Little Life Savers seeing more groups teaching and more children able to deliver CPR, Management of Choking and the Recovery Position.
All the trustees and volunteers at Little Life Savers would like to thank Frugi for their help and support.”
