Being able to live your best life is a mantra close to our hearts. It’s the driving force behind our beautiful products and we thrive on helping women get organised and get on with loving life to the full. This also extends to giving back and being able to help is something we strongly believe in. We are proud of the charity work and partnerships we have supported in the past and we were keen to do more, which is why we are excited to announce our new charity partner, Something To Look Forward To.
Something To Look Forward To is a wonderful family-run charity supporting people affected by cancer by providing treats to look forward to via a gift-sharing website. Victoria Green worked with the charity in the past, donating a bundle of wash bags and makeup bags and we were so impressed with the work the charity does, we chose it as our first charity partner.
Buy the ‘Esther’ Makeup Bag and give back to charity
To support this wonderful charity, from October through to December Victoria Green will donate £2 from every purchase of its newly launched 'Esther' Makeup Bag in Mandala Charcoal to Something To Look Forward To. This donation will help towards the running of the charity so it can continue its fabulous work of helping those most affected by cancer and cancer poverty with a much-needed treat.
‘I'm so honoured to be supporting this wonderful charity, set up by the inspiring Fiona, and run by her daughter Francesca. My heart goes out to those who are not only going through surgery and treatment for cancer, but are also experiencing financial hardship, and that's why I'm proud to champion this fantastic initiative.' Victoria
Unless you have been affected by cancer, it’s hard to understand how frightening a diagnosis and treatment must be. Fiona and Andy, the founding directors of Something to Look Forward To experienced this firsthand when Fiona was diagnosed with breast cancer. Faced with the daunting task of treatment, Fiona had the added stress of financial worries and was forced to work and support her family whilst going through this distressing experience.
During this time, Andy and Fiona found that small treats such as a meal out, a night in a hotel or a day out with the family made all the difference when times were tough, and so the idea was borne. Since 2015 Something To Look Forward To has grown into a national charity supporting thousands of families by providing gifts and experiences donated by individuals and businesses to provide even the smallest amount of delight. It is a genuine family-run affair, with Fiona’s daughter, Francesca, now running the charity, following Fiona’s sad passing earlier this year.
“Victoria Green was one of the first brands we built a formal partnership with and as a small charity, it was a breath of fresh air for a successful brand to value our work. Its support with donations and promoting our charity has helped us reach more people living with cancer, as well as other businesses interested in supporting our cause. We are honoured to continue our partnership with them.” Francesca
