We are very pleased to be Moortown Marks & Spencer’s Charity of the Year for 2018 / 2019 and following on from their help with the book giveaway in July, and the bag pack in August, it’s time to pack one more in before Christmas!
On Saturday 22 December we have a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness for Sunshine & Smiles and collect donations in return for bag packing at the Moortown store, from 10 am until 4 pm.
Please let us know if you could help for part or all of the day by either emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with the duration of time you’ll be helping for, or you can turn up on the day if you’re feeling spontaneous!
In January 2019 21 Co. Shop & Café will open to the public!
This comes after what was a very successful pop up Cafe21 Project in March; celebrating World Down Syndrome Day. Since, we have been looking for a long-term venue to have our very own shop and more importantly; offer work experience and training opportunities to our young adults who have Down Syndrome.
We have signed the lease for the next 6 months and before we officially open in January, we would like to invite you for a sneak peek!
Join us on 20th December for our Preview Evening to give you the chance to purchase some Christmas gifts from independent local designers and makers, including; hand made jewellery, local painters, sculptors & ceramicists.
Some of the Christmas gifts available to purchase are;
Hand Made Christmas Cards
Sunshine & Smiles and Cafe21 Tea Towels
… and much more!
Thank you to everyone who has helped us make this happen, including a special thank you to Schroders!
