The Stroke Association
The Stroke Association has been a key charity partner of Sophie Allport since the start of 2022, with personal connections to the Allport family. The Stroke Association is the UK’s only dedicated stroke charity. Stroke strikes every five minutes in the UK. It can happen to anyone, of any age, at any time. The Stroke Association provides specialist support, funds critical research and campaigns to make sure that everyone affected by stroke gets the very best care and support to rebuild their lives.
Our new Snow Season Christmas Cards have been designed for all ages and are perfect for sending season greetings to loved ones over the festive period. The beautiful snowy scenes feature a family of polar bears, arctic hares in Santa hats and skiing penguins bearing gifts, this charming and playful design is sure to make everyone smile. For every pack sold, we will donate 50% of net sales to the Stroke Association.
The National Garden Scheme
They say gardening is good for the soul, mind, and body, and we love any reason to spend time outdoors. The National Garden Scheme gives visitors unique access to over 3,500 exceptional private gardens whilst raising funds for key charities. The charities supported include Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie, Hospice UK, Carers Trust, The Queen’s Nursing Institute and Parkinson’s UK.
Our Festive Christmas Cards feature three charming designs which capture a magical festive feeling. Two of the designs show similar scenes of snowy front doors decorated with seasonal wreaths complete with Christmas trees and other festive drawings from Sophie, the other card is dotted with a variety of beautiful Christmas tree designs with a barn owl swooping above. These lovely cards are perfect for writing a thoughtful Christmas message to your nearest and dearest both near and far. For every pack sold, we will donate 50% of net sales to the National Garden Scheme.
Buglife is a charity close to Sophie Allport in many ways, from being a local charity to coordinating with many of Sophie’s designs and supporting all the insects we love! Buglife is the only organisation in Europe devoted to the conservation of all invertebrates. They are working to save Britain’s rarest little animals, everything from bees to beetles and worms to woodlice. Invertebrates are key to our very existence, and we should be caring for them in any way we can.
Perfect for wishing a Merry Christmas to friends and family, our Festive Forest Christmas Cards feature three heart-warming designs which capture a magical festive feeling. Dotted with hedgehogs, badgers, hares and squirrels in a snowy festive forest waiting for Father Christmas to arrive. For every pack sold, we will donate 50% of net sales to Buglife.
The Ruth Strauss Foundation
In December 2018, Ruth Strauss, wife of Sir Andrew Strauss the former England cricket captain, lost her life to a form of non-smoking related lung cancer. The Ruth Strauss Foundation was launched in her memory to provide professional emotional support for families facing the death of a parent from cancer - and drive the need for more research into non-smoking lung cancers.
Our Robins Christmas Card will spread Christmas cheer to loved ones this season and is perfect for sending season's tweetings! Featuring three lovely designs which capture a magical festive feeling. The first features two adorable plump red-breasted robins holding a sprig of mistletoe together, whilst the second shows robins perched on top of a Christmas tree on an snowy olive green ground, and the final card has robins perched on a row of Christmas trees on a snowy white ground. For every pack sold, we will donate 50% of net sales to The Ruth Strauss Foundation.
Wild At Heart Foundation
The Wild at Heart Foundation believes in dog and wants to end the suffering of stray dogs all over the world. They believe that each and every rescue dog deserves the chance to live a healthy, happy life, free from the threat of pain, suffering, cruelty or neglect. Their mission is to work compassionately to reduce the world’s 600 million stray dog population. They do this through sterilisation, education and welfare projects.
As most of you know, at Sophie Allport, we adore dogs, and we are so delighted to be working alongside the Wild at Heart Foundation. Our Christmas Dogs Christmas Cards were really popular last year and we're so pleased that we are able to help raise funds for the Wild at Heart Foundation, which will help, save and rescue dogs in need from the rising ride of cruelty, abuse and neglect.
