As you probably already know, Beverley Edmondson Millinery Every year runs a ‘Poppy Appeal’ campaign.
This year Beverley Edmondson Millinery hosted a charity shopping evening on 25th October raising money for the Poppy Appeal 2017. We invited clients and friends to a private shopping evening with, drinks and nibbles and donations from every sale to the Poppy Appeal.
We had a wonderful evening raising funds for this great cause with nibbles, Prosecco and goody bags for all attendees with offers on the night, donations to the Poppy Appeal from every sale and an exclusive private view of the winter accessory and millinery collections to get the Christmas shopping season started alongside the poppies.
We have been working closely with The Poppy Appeal for the last 5 years, donating 20% of sales from all poppy items during October and November, ranging from pins, scarves, jewellery, purses and cufflinks with items for both men and women.
Since moving into the new premises in may have the space to be able to host these kinds of events for our clients and fingers crossed raise even more money for The Poppy Appeal.
We have incredible support from both the Royal British legion and from Robert and Anthea Archer-Burton, the Poppy appeal organisers for Farnham, to help us with our fundraising. It is a joy working so closely with them.
The visibility of the new store made a huge difference to our Poppy appeal campaign this year, with 2 windows dedicated to the poppy appeal and a large display in store, we smashed all donation goals that we had hoped to reach!
The total amount raised for The Poppy Appeal this year through our charity evening and the donation from the sale of every poppy item is an incredible £1339! Plus we are still waiting for the total donations to be counted from the donation tin in store as well so it is still rising!
Thanks again everybody for all of your support.
