Adding a lot of Sparkle to a Monday!
We are delighted to have surprised a local charity with a 3 hour Spa Experience for each of their members, a donation worth over £3,600.
We often say that our Gift Vouchers are a wonderful gift to give as well as receive and today we had the absolute pleasure of adding a little Spa to local charity Sparkle Sheffield! Sparkle Sheffield, help families with Autistic Children.
We know that the benefits of the Spa Experience are plentiful, and we are delighted to have respite initiatives with Sheffield Carers Trust and St Luke’s Hospice and we knew from speaking to Leesh that the parents supported by Sparkle Sheffield were the ideal recipients of this scheme.
We first encountered Leesha, the CEO, a few years ago when during the charities infancy she was creating a pack for families and asked to include our brochures.
Then more recently Leesh got in touch regarding an upcoming event for the charity, during the conversation it became clear that the charity had come a long way since our initial conversation about brochures.
Leesh has grown the charity to support their 122 members, her passion and determination is nothing short of remarkable. Including putting Sheffield on the map as the Autistic Champion of the Nation including with a recent achievement of getting 15 shops in Sheffield City Centre to agree to open on their doors 1 hour early or dedicate their first hour of trading on Saturday 1st April for a huge autism awareness campaign. An event which was so successful it was featured by The One Show.
Leesh described the donation as "Me time" for parents who don't get any! She said "You have no idea how much our parents will value this donation"
We cannot wait to welcome Leesh, and other parents in her position for some well-deserved rest and relaxation. To find our more about this fantastic local organisation please visit their website...http://www.sparklesheffield.co.uk/
