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, Kids Company, supports vulnerable inner-city children, young adults and their families. Summarised on their website, their therapeutic work “helps children and young people to manage the devastating effects of trauma and abuse and is complemented by practical support providing bare essentials such as food, clothing and bedding, together with longer term support for education, training and employment.“
So what can you guys do to help? On a simple level, come say hello and pop some spare change in our collection tins! Kids Company 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:
3 month subscription to Bloom & Wild letterbox flowers
3 book bundle – Style Me Vintage Home, Accessories & 1940s from Pavilion Books!
£50 Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair voucher

More coming soon…
We’re still on the lookout for some fab companies who would be kind enough to donate some prizes to our big charity raffle. We have some great prizes already lined up (including some donations from very famous faces!), but we always welcome more – simply get in touch with us via Facebook or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Let’s get raising!
