We're delighted to partner with Victoria's Promise, a charity that provides care and support beyond medicine for women dealing with cancer.They offer specialist skin care, chemotherapy beauticians, wig funding and counselling and advice services.
Here's just a few ways we're supporting Victoria's Promise and the incredible work they do:
Our Good Food Fund hopes to raise money that will go directly to the charity. For every new customer that joins through their community we'll donate £35 over their first couple of deliveries.
We're also giving a box of organic fruit & veg to every newly diagnosed woman who comes into the care of the charity.
Victoria's Promise hosts fantastic Women's Workshops every month, so we'll be keeping them fed with organic nibbles every month.
For the next two weeks we're donating £1 from the sale of our Organic Booster Bundle, an organic selection of lemons (x2), mint (30g), parsley (30g), ginger (50g) and turmeric (50g) to pep up your weekly recipes. This “flavour kit” can jazz up juices, smoothies, hot drinks, stir-fries and be used alongside your fruit & veg box.
At Veg Hq we've held Bake Sales and Quiz Nights all to help raise a bit of money for this fantastic charity and this weekend, 18 of us are going for the Three Peaks Challenge in Yorkshire. A grueling 24 mile hike including a whopper of an ascent (coming in at 5,200ft) taking around 12 hours to cross the finish. We all agreed that any money we raise should go to Victoria's Promise.
Over on their blog, Louisa, their Young Women’s Network Coordinator, talks about how this amazing partnership happened. (Here's a clue; it started with organic fruit & veg, and the rest is history.)
