Anyone indulging in a luxury hamper this festive season will be able to do their bit for one of three local charities whilst enjoying some delicious goodies.
Highland Fayre, which provides gifts ranging from £12.95 to £600, has decided to support CLAN Cancer Support, VSA and Friends of Anchor and will make a donation to the charity of the shopper’s choice.
For every order that is forwarded or introduced by one of the organisations, Highland Fayre will make a donation to the charity.
The company decided to support the charities as part of their policy to help local causes wherever possible.
David England, managing director at Highland Fayre, said: “We are delighted to be working with these three excellent causes. Over the last two decades we have had an increasing number of requests for support from charities and have always done our best to help. This year we have decided to take a new approach and select specific charities to focus our efforts on. We hope the link with Highland Fayre will make a material difference to them.”
The charities involved are delighted that Highland Fayre has selected each of them and are extremely grateful for the company’s support. Further more, anyone who uses the company for future purchases will continue supporting their chosen charity as each subsequent order will also generate a donation.
Anyone interested in purchasing a hamper can do so by calling 01738 639222. Further information can also be found by visiting www.highlandfayre.co.uk
