October 01 2021 – Victoria Le Marquand
We are asking for donations of your British handmade products for our Charity Christmas Sale. We will be raising money for the homeless charity, St Mungo's.
100% of profits will go to St Mungo's.
We are asking for product donations from any UK makers, crafters, ceramicists, jewellers, knitters, crocheters, sewers, woodworkers, artists and anyone else we've forgotten making products here in the UK including British made brands!!
We are holding this Christmas Charity Sale to raise money specifically for St Mungo's Recovery College in Bristol, a pioneering, inclusive learning programme, based on the principle that learning can be a transformative experience and change lives. Where arts and crafts are taught by volunteers to help with mindfulness, to engage and inspire their clients.

The Recovery College learning experience is based on principles of co-production. Courses are designed, delivered and attended by St Mungo’s clients, staff and volunteers. All our courses are free and run by volunteers, this is a cause close to home as Victoria Le Marquand the founder of IndependentBoutique.com teaches on their Textiles course.
We would love your handmade, British made, product donations to sell online for our sale from 11th - 21st November. To donate you would not only be giving to an amazing cause but also showcasing your work amongst this community. Creating an amazing Christmas Sale, where all profits go to the St Mungo's charity with a feel good, all round event for everyone involved.
