We’ve seen some busy and very successful weeks at Beverley Edmondson Millinery in Farnham and we’ve been very proud to raise money for some very good causes!
The Poppy appeal:
We’ve have been selling our poppies again in aid of the Poppy appeal after a year spent sourcing new poppy designs for our customers. Beverley even took a trip to the Tower of London to see the poppies, and what a stunning memorial it was!
With our poppies a major success this year, we managed to increase the percentage of profits that we give to the British Legion, with up to 20% of every poppy sold going to the cause. After just 4 weeks of poppy craziness in the shop, we successfully donated £675 to the British Legion! That doesn’t even include donations in the collection tin, which historically have been around the £100 mark!

Here are a couple of this years poppy designs:
Following this we were invited to be part of Fleet Fashion Week to aid:
The Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice:
Our staff member Hannah, and Beverley herself, enjoyed taking part in a fashion show along with lots of other local retailers, raising money for Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice. It was a phenomenal fashion show and a fantastic showcase! The show and all it’s styling proceeded an afternoon tea talk at the Lismoyne hotel, Fleet where Beverley spoke all about hats and Jan from ‘The Style Architect’ gave an engaging talk about how to get the most from your wardrobe.
Frimley Park Hospital Breast Care Appeal:
Just when we thought the excitement might come to an end we had the opportunity to hold a sample sale at the Bush Hotel in Farnham. We cleared old stock and ends of lines and sold a variety of classic favourites off, some discounted to over 75% off! We collaborated with the Frimley Park Hospital’s Charity Breast Care Appeal to do this, and so after a busy and successful day selling, we were happy to write a cheque donation to the appeal for £160!
