Our Wrapping Party is this Saturday! Plus find out more about The Winch charity

We are so excited about our first-ever Wrapping Party at our West Hampstead shop this Saturday! This is a drop-in event happening all day long and we'll provide everything you need to wrap gifts creatively or create fun wrap. Bring in gifts to wrap, buy gifts to wrap, or just make gift wrap, cards and/or gift tags to take home! We'll also have festive treats and mulled wine on hand and Christmas tunes playing! This event is suitable for all ages. If you had fun at our Christmas Crafts Kickoff Day you'll love this too!

Wrapping Party

This event is free, but we'll be accepting donations on behalf of The Winch, a wonderful local charity that has been supporting 0-25 year olds affected by poverty and disadvantage since 1973. 
 The Winch

If you make a donation, it will go to one of two areas at The Winch that we are so thrilled to help support. Here's a little more info about these programmes, in their own words:

FAMILY SUPPORT PROGRAMMES
 
Parenthood can be tough, and, for some, it can be lonely too. We connect parents, where every voice is heard and every challenge halved.

For too many parents, raising a child is a time of stress. Many in our community struggle to provide for their children, feel “trapped” in temporary accommodation, suffer poor perinatal mental health and more. We listen when parents tell us the resounding issue they face is in feeling isolated, facing challenges alone.
 
We’ve grown what our parents call a ‘second family’. Our programmes are accessible, welcoming and intimate. This means we reach those most in need, and those who don’t traditionally access support. It’s also meant our parents quickly feel comfortable to share, and thus halve, challenges they may be facing within a group founded on shared experience and empathy. 

YOUTH ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Poor career prospects fail to accommodate the talents of our young people. We help 16-25 year olds realise their potential, providing entrepreneurial support, increased confidence and navigation for those needing a little help to find their way, on their terms.
 
Camden, for many a borough of potential, has some of the highest rates of young adults who are not in employment, education or training. Many young people also grow up lacking the aspiration and confidence to flourish. 
 
We help young adults to re-capture their zeal and dream big. We work with those designing their own clothes, starting a catering company or their own business offering business mentors, access to our maker-space, stitch cafes and opportunity to pitch their enterprise to win seed-funding.

We hope to see you this Saturday at our West Hampstead shop! If you'd like to make a donation to The Winch but can't come to the shop, just click here.
