Status as a Community Interest Company (C.I.C)

Hello!

We hope you are all keeping safe out there and looking out for each other.

We have some lovely news!

Hampers for Heroes has secured status as a Community Interest Company (C.I.C)!

This means we are a not-for-profit social enterprise. Going forward, we aim to build stronger communities and address the mental health toll of this awful pandemic.

This is incredibly exciting for all of us and will hopefully open lots of doors for us to continue sending care, light and love. We want to continue recognising the sacrifice others have made to keep our society safe.

As ever, your support means the world.

Do keep an eye on our socials – there will be lots more news to share over the coming weeks and new ways for you to get involved!

Love & Light,
H4H

World Photo Day

It’s #WorldPhotoDay 📸, which we thought was the perfect excuse to share even more photos of the amazing healthcare heroes we’ve met over the last few months! 💙

Please keep supporting teams like these by donating snacks, drinks and handcreams, or donate from home here: https://gf.me/u/yj5tnv 🌟

Thank you for helping us to say #ThankYouHeroes

New Website

Welcome to our shiny new website, how do we look?!

Consider this our HQ if you will … the one-stop-shop for everything ‘Hampers for Heroes’. If you want to donate, volunteer, nominate, catch up on our latest news, get in touch … you can do it all here.

The big news this week is that we are submitting our charity application to the charity commission! Hopefully this means that very soon we will be a registered charity and with this superpower, we will be able to give thanks, love and support to our health and social care heroes in bigger and better ways. So … watch this space!

Our social media campaign #ThankYouHeroes, launched recently with our amazing friends at AMG, Law Creative and Daisy Craydon PR has already gathered brilliant support from some incredibly inspirational people. Click the video below to watch Azeem Amir, Blind England Footballer (and world record holder for fastest blind Tough Mudder Challenge!) thank his heroes. As we look back on a difficult few months in lockdown and as our communities begin to open up again, it’s important to say #ThankYouHeroes to the healthcare workers who have kept us safe. Join in and share your message on social media using the hashtag #ThankYouHeroes – let’s make sure our heroes know how appreciated and supported they are!

In the meantime, please continue donating what you can to our gofundme page … pennies, pounds, it all helps. You could consider donating a coffee break to a hardworking team; Just £5 can buy 6 packets of biscuits and 16 cups of coffee for a healthcare team who need a break.

Thanks for all your support so far, together we are doing a great thing.

Love & Light,

H4H
