Wight Christmas Trees, which is set to open on the outskirts of Newport later this month, will be donating £5 from every sale to Pop-Up Soup Kitchen.
Based at Staplehurst Grange (formerly the Lavender Farm), on Staplers Road, Wight Christmas Trees offers premium quality British grown trees and festive accessories, including an exclusive festive candle blended by local makers, Duxmore Botanics.
The business will donate £5 from the sale of each tree and candle sold to the Pop-Up Soup Kitchen, an Island-based, not-for-profit venture that provides vital outreach support, respite programmes and meals to homeless and vulnerable people here on the Island.
Trevor Blaney, Founder of the Pop-Up Soup Kitchen says:
“The past 18 months have taken their toll on everyone – and with factors such as the rising cost of energy and unemployment, demand for our support continues to be significant. We rely entirely on donations, so we are thrilled that Wight Christmas Trees have chosen to support us with this venture”.
Frank Morey, Owner of Wight Christmas Trees, comments:
“The Island is renowned for its incredible community spirit, so as our thoughts turn to spending time with our loved ones this season and enjoying the festivities, it seems the perfect moment to raise awareness and much needed funds to help those less fortunate – not just at Christmas, but throughout the year”.
Wight Christmas Trees is open daily from 27th November at Staplehurst Grange (near Newport) with free parking and Island-wide delivery available.
