Forevermore Charity Work
Over the years we have been open we have always tried to support local charities who come to us asking for help with fundraising as well as arranging our own events and competitions to raise money for causes that mean a lot to us. Here you can see some information about charity work we have done in the past as well as upcoming events and fundraising. We hope to see you at one of them soon!
Children In War Appeal
In December 2016 Lola came up with this wonderful incentive to raise money for Save The Children!
During the festive period we wanted people to spare a thought for tens of thousands of small children lost, injured and orphaned in the war that continues to rage in Syria. We decided that if a customer donates £5 or £10 to www.savethechildren.org.uk we would discount that amount from their piercing cost. This means while you're in getting your piercing you'll have done a really, really lovely thing by donating a portion of the money you would have paid us to Children who have nothing and no one this Christmas.
During this promotion Lola helped raise £160 for those most vunerable chil refugees and we thank all our customers who got involved.
A Bee For Panzi
In February 2015 our Piercer Lola set up a raffle for a 14k gold Bee by Body Gems to raise money for The Panzi Hospital.
Panzi Hospital is dedicated to the treatment of survivors of sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo. They offer life saving surgery to women who have suffered extreme gynaecological trauma as a result of rape and support for the 40-60% of women who are unable to return home to their families because of the stigma associated with sexual violence.
We raised enough money for one woman at the Maison Dorcas aftercare facility to receive an education in numeracy, literacy, business skills and vocational training.
Together with our customers and our tiny little jewellery giveaway we were able to provide a survivor of horrific trauma with life changing skills that we all take for granted. We hope to do more for this incredible foundation in the future.
