This week I thought I would share with you a fantastic selection of charity calendars and diaries.
From our in-house charity, Guide Dogs, to WWF and Help for Heroes, the range continues to grow each year! The list isn't extensive so please check out our full list of charity titles here.
Guide Dogs Puppies Calendar 2015
The Guide Dogs charity has been one that we have supported dearly over the years, with collection boxes placed in our stores around the UK and Ireland. So far your kind donations have helped sponsor 4 puppies in their first year of training. The puppies include Brook, Lewis, Buddy, and our brand new pup, Wilson.
The Guide Dogs charity have been expertly breeding and training guide dogs for more than 75 years, providing many thousands to blind and partially-sighted people of all ages and from all walks of life. They also deliver confidence-building rehabilitation services to adults, young people and children - including long cane mobility training and communication and daily living skills.
The Guide Dog Puppies calendar from Gallery Five features gorgeous pups that are in training and 15% of the sales will go directly to the charity!
Help for Heroes Household Planner / Help for Heroes A5 Diary
Help for Heroes' mission is to deliver an enduring national network of support for our wounded and their families. They aim to inspire and enable those who have made sacrifices on our behalf to achieve their full potential! With our fantastic H4H range from Carousel you can help raise money for our wonderful servicemen and women! The range includes calendars, planners and diaries.
Banksy Easel Calendar 2015
The Banksy range from Red Star features calendars, diaries and notebooks with a percentage of all profits going to the Julian Trust Night Shelter in Banksy's hometown of Bristol.
The Julian Trust Night Shelter has aimed to help those who are roofless, sleeping rough around the city and have the most appalling conditions to contend with. The Night Shelter is open five nights every week throughout the year where a warm welcome and a hot meal awaits homeless people and rough sleepers. Not only do they provide emergency shelter and comfort, they also work with other homeless charities to provide a helping hand into looking for work, full time accomodation and the hope of happiness.
WWF A5 Deluxe Diary 2015
WWF's ultimate goal has always been “people living in harmony with nature”. They're about respecting and valuing the natural world and finding ways to share the Earth’s resources fairly.
To address these threats to the natural world they have set themselves ambitious targets on six ‘big wins’, promising to meet them by 2018.
Our range of truly beautiful calendars and diaries feature animals from across the world, with a percentage from each sale going to WWF. You can also help by adopting an animal here!
Warwick University Naked Rowing Club Calendar 2015
It's the second year for us stocking the Warwick Rowers calendar and we are very proud to be doing so. The calendar raises money for the charity Sport Allies, a programme to reach out to young people challenged by bullying, homophobia or low self-esteem. The rowers launched their first calendar in 2009 and last year decided to join the fight against homophobia.
