Charity Chat – Judy’s 10th Birthday Giveaway for The Rainbow Trust

As a business, we like to believe that we at Judy’s are a pretty charitable bunch. We save and re-home thousands of vintage items with every event we put on, and regularly sort our own personal wardrobes to give away to the likes of Cancer Research, Barnados and the RSPCA.

However, we are set to turn 10 years old this year, and it’s got us thinking about what more we can do to really help make a difference. We also got to thinking about parties, celebrations and what we can do to show you guys (our loyal fans!) some love for all your support over the years.

While we have some very special plans up our sleeves that we can’t reveal just yet, what we can announce is that we are thrilled and honoured to be supporting a wonderful charity, hoping to raise £5,000 for a cause very close to our hearts.

Our chosen charity, The Rainbow Trust, supports over 25% of the 6,000 families in England who have a child aged 0-18 years of age with a life threatening or terminal illness. Ranging from providing cooked meals for families and helping maintain school attendance for siblings of poorly children to bereavement counselling and days out, their holistic care is close to our hearts at Judy HQ/

So what can you guys do to help? On a simple level, come say hello and pop some spare change in our collection tins! Rainbow Trust donation caddies will be popping up across our Affordable Vintage Fairs, Kilo Sales and Furniture Fleas very soon, so keep your eyes peeled and dig deep! To see all of our upcoming events, click here.

If you’d rather donate online, it’s just as easy – simply head over to our Just Giving page.

We’re also hosting a HUGE CHARITY RAFFLE! Prizes include:
