Women for Women International, are an incredible charity that work to support women and children affected by war and conflict. After being moved by the plight of refugees fleeing their homes, we knew we wanted to help in some way.
Our founder Alice visited war-torn Kosovo and conducted a workshop for one of the charity's business skills programmes. She was so moved by the generosity of spirit of the women, on her return designed the ‘Share a Hug’ jewellery range – a design which incorporates the open arms of acceptance.
The proceeds of the profits of the 'Share A Hug' Collection go straight to the charity to help them continue their vital work empowering and supporting women by giving them the tools to rebuild their lives.
Quite simply Rockinghorse are a fantastic charity who are dedicated to improving the lives of sick children in Sussex. When Alice, our founder’s, eldest son Oliver was just an infant, she had first-hand experience of the local children's hospital where he was taken ill. Thankfully pulling through unscathed, Alice was both grateful and inspired by the care he received.
The Rockinghorse Children's Charity raises money for The Royal Alexandra Children's Hospital in and The Trevor Mann unit based in Brighton. Proceeds of the profits of our Rockinghorse jewellery collection go directly to the charity to support these important facilities.
This incredible charity is local to us in Brighton and has been working for the last 40 years at a grassroots level, supporting women in Sussex when they most need it.
At BWC, women are welcomed and supported are from all social backgrounds, facing all kinds of issues from domestic violence to poverty, discrimination, mental and physical health issues.
The charity offers support on a practical, educational and emotional level – with the aim of helping women become stronger, empowered and more independent.
We believe the work they do is immensely important. Our jewellers have designed the simple, and emotive Silver Venus Necklace representing sisterhood and strength £2.00 from the sale of each necklace towards Brighton Women’s Centre. Please help us support them and read all about the charity here.
