Gifts that support our Charity

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

We have some suggestions for you – as well as being quality, good value products they help our charity too.

Our friends at Hamilton & Inches have designed, exclusively for us, some stunning jewellery

The Shooting Star range comprises a silver necklace, ear-rings (both drop and stud), a charm, and a lapel or tie pin.  This range of jewellery is not available in Hamilton & Inches shop. It can only be bought from us directly.   Every penny from the sales comes to the Charity.

Email us to order yours – we can post out (p and p at cost)

Then we have our friends at Harmonies in Wood – in addition to making us stunning prizes for auction at events Scott has designed these gorgeous glass coasters with the Ripple Retreat logo.

They are available in any colour combination – and we get a lovely donation of £2 per coaster sold.  Each coaster is £15 (would make a fabulous wedding or anniversary gift too)

Order direct from Scott

Clare Steen of Silverbean jewellery has also designed us a range of stunning silver  jewellery.

Have a look – all jewellery can be ordered direct from Silverbean website 

A % of each sale comes to It’s Good 2 Give

We extend our heartfelt thanks to all who support us by designing, making, and buying our merchandise!

Snowdon challenge

A huge thank you to Tim Carter for completing the Snowdon Challenge whilst raising over £1,400 for It’s Good 2 Give.  We love to hear all about the different adventurous challenges that people take on.  Tim took on this challenge after hearing about our charity through his colleague (and one of our Trustees) Susie Bradley.

Here are a couple of photos of Tim during his challenge.

Thanks Tim

With 2019 being our 10th year of It’s Good 2 Give we will be having lots more events for you to join us.

Which in turns means lots more tombola / auction / raffle prizes needed…. if you perhaps have any new unwanted gifts then please do PM and let us know.

Anything would be much appreciated.
