Every year, Black Friday is celebrated the day after Thanksgiving. Originating in America, this event has become more and more popular in the UK in recent years. Black Friday is a chance for retailers to offer a discount to their customers, with many now also choosing to support a charity to ensure the ideals of Thanksgiving are put into practice. This year we are hosting Orange Friday to encourage our community to support their local hospice, as well as to say thank you for your support. Below we discuss this, along with other ways you can support St Catherine’s this Friday:
Shop in our Charity Shops
All of our charity shops are hosting Orange Friday on 23rd November to celebrate all that St Catherine’s is! They will be offering a MASSIVE 50% off everything* for one day only and we have loads of great, quality items for you to choose from. You can find your nearest St Catherine’s Charity Shop here.
*offer excludes furniture and jewellery
Donate any unwanted items to our Charity Shops
You can also donate any unwanted items to our charity shops. Why not donate one (or more) items for every one you buy this Black Friday to show your support for your local hospice? You can discover what items you can and can’t donate to our shops across Sussex and Surrey here.
Donate to us
If you are planning on hitting the shops this Black Friday to pick up some of the fantastic deals out there, why not donate a percentage of the money you have saved to St Catherine’s? Your support will help us care for more local people in your community when they need us most.
You can donate online, here.
Support us through your local business
If you are a local business offering Black Friday savings to your customers, we would love you to support St Catherine’s at the same time by donating a percentage of your profits for the day. Not only will you be making a real difference, but it will give your customers a feel-good-factor too, knowing that they are supporting a local charity.
If you are feeling inspired, you can contact our team on 01293 447365 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Shop online at Amazon Smile
Did you know that the Monday after Black Friday is known as Cyber Monday? If you prefer to shop from the comfort of your own home, why not log onto Amazon Smile to do so?
