At Colourmaster we like to get involved and support good causes whenever we can. We commit to giving 2% of our profits to charity every year. These are some of the charities we have supported recently:
Shelter – Our 2022 Christmas Charity
Our 2022 Christmas charity is Shelter. Shelter believe that home is a human right – our foundation and where we thrive. Yet, every day millions of people are being devastated by the housing emergency. They exist to defend the right to a safe home because home is everything. We have pledged to give £1 for every order received in December.
Divine Mercy Church – Polish Church
The Polish Parish Divine Mercy Church was created in Manchester just after World War II by soldiers of the Second Corps Polish Army who were led by General Wladyslaw Anders. We were very happy to be able to help with their fundraising for a new roof on the Parish Hall.
Covid-19 is spiralling out of control in India, with the health system enable to cope. Please donate and help the most vulnerable to face this devastating surge.
Free Hula Hoops!
We have some hula hoops left over from a pre-pandemic marketing promotion, so if you’re an educational establishment please let us know if you’d like some for a great socially-distanced playtime activity.
Cool Earth is a charity that works alongside indigenous villages to halt rainforest destruction.
A charity which plants trees & funds the world’s best climate crisis solutions to help accelerate our transition to a more sustainable future.
BBC Children in Need
Our biodegradable additive, BioSphere, was used in Pudsey bear pin badges this year, so we felt it only right to donate some of the profits to BBC Children in Need.
As one of the dedicated youth homelessness charities in the UK, Centrepoint help to get vulnerable young people off the streets and give them a safe place to live while they get back on their feet. We sponsor a room to help give a young person a safe place, somewhere to start their future.
Your Kids Around the World
A small Sheffield-based charity shop that raises funds to feed, house, clothe and educate disadvantaged children in Romania, Latvia, Armenia, China, Liberia, Jamaica, Kosova and Bosnia.
Pennine Pen Animal Rescue
Pennine Pen’s mission is to provide sanctuary to unwanted and abandoned animals, and re-home dogs, cats and rabbits to new, loving homes.
Our founder, Eddie Maker, was an avid stamp collector, so by collecting stamps we help the RNIB to break down the barriers that stop people with sight loss living life to the full. They accept all stamps: new or used, first or second class, foreign, first day covers, presentation packs or albums. Stamps are sold by weight and they raise £20 per kilogram of stamps, so it’s a brilliant way for them to raise money.
Smalls for All
Smalls for All is a Scottish charity which collects and distributes underwear to help women and children in Africa and the UK. Giving pants and bras may seem like a strange thing, but it can make a life-changing difference. For example, having pants can help teenage girls complete their education without having to miss school each month during their period.
