PLAN INTERNATIONAL UK

WHAT THEY DO:

Of the 800 million people living in poverty today, almost two-thirds are women and girls. Added to this, girls are less likely to be at school than boys. Currently, 1 in 3 adolescent girls are missing out on an education. Through a variety of programmes, Plan International support girls so that they will be free from violence and get the education skills and support they need to become powerful forces for change in their communities

WHY WE’RE FANS:

"Having spent a lot of time in Asia, we’ve seen first hand that in poorer communities, it’s often girls who miss out on receiving an education, as well as facing many potential dangers. For many years now, Sugarhill has sponsored young girls through Plan International in India, Africa and Vietnam so we are looking forward to working more closely with Plan International with our #WearAndCare initiative."

Pawel, Managing Director.

BORN FREE

WHAT THEY DO:

 Born Free’s mission is to ensure that all wild animals, whether living in captivity or in the wild, are treated with compassion and respect and are able to live their lives according to their needs. Born Free promotes Compassionate Conservation to enhance the survival of threatened species in the wild and protect natural habitats while respecting the needs of and safeguarding the welfare of individual animals.

WHY WE’RE FANS:

"I remember seeing the Born Free film when I was very young and I still remember the soundtrack. Animals have special significance for us at Sugarhill, as they form the basis of many of the prints we exclusively design.  When looking for an animal charity to support, it was amazing to find one that works so tirelessly to prevent animal suffering and protect threatened species around the world."

WHOOPSADAISY

WHAT THEY DO:

Most of the children at Whoopsadaisy have cerebral palsy, and all of them face daily challenges in terms of their mobility, co-ordination and balance. Many of the children also have speech, communication and learning difficulties. Building on children’s existing abilities, the dedicated team provide tailored learning opportunities to help develop the children’s physical, cognitive, social and self-help skills as well as giving their parents the tools so that their progress can continue to be supported at home.

WHY WE’RE FANS:

“I live near the beautiful Preston Park in Brighton and while taking my baby girl for walks, I would pass by a cute little building that, I later found out, housed a local charity which worked with young children with physical and learning disabilities. Pawel and I have visited Whoopsadaisy a few times now and while the kids are learning skills to increase their independence and confidence, they are having lots of fun with it too! We’re so pleased and honoured to work with such a wonderful charity that spread love and support to affected families in the Brighton area.”
