No, your eyes do not deceive you. Black Friday is cancelled.
We are not participating in the event with monster sales and crazy discounts. Instead we have another plan for the products we would usually discount over the course of this weekend.
We wanted to do some good for all the families that have nothing to open under the tree this Christmas, and simply can’t afford gifts for their loved ones.
What is Silver Sunday?
Whilst we delight in helping our customers to make their homes as comforting and beautiful as possible we are very aware that there are people who are not fortunate enough to have a place to call home.
This coming Sunday, 29.11.20, we will be donating to two very special charities; Mustard Tree & Coffee4Craig.
Firstly, Mustard Tree helps people that find themselves homeless to change their lives, secure better accommodation and economic wellbeing. This year we are supporting their efforts by donating a range of stock, including cookware, storage items and home essentials. We hope this small gesture goes some way to helping their cause this Christmas.
As well as our stock donation we also wanted to give back a little of our earnings from this Sunday 29th November, 2020.
Traditionally the Sunday of Black Friday weekend is our biggest day of business each year, so we have decided to donate 2% of all turnover from that day to Coffee4Craig.
Coffee4Craig are a homeless charity based locally to us in Manchester, UK. They provide essentials including hot food, showers, medical support and mental health intervention to those who desperately need it.
We hope to increase our 2% donation once business is back to normal. We urge everybody to giveback where they can this Christmas, and support those who need it most. By following the link below you can find a list of local UK homeless charities, we encourage you to join us in celebrating Silver Sunday rather than Black Friday this year.
We hope you understand our reasoning for not participating in the Black Friday sales. We are still open for business and we truly appreciate each and every order we receive.
This is a small gesture but we hope it can bring joy to those who find themselves in a dark place this Christmas.
