Charity

We have always been passionate about giving back and working closely with charities at Sophie Allport. Each charity we support is remarkable in what they do, whether that’s raising awareness, funding research, working with conservation, or helping to make a difference in the world we live in.

We have five charity partners, which we support each year. These partners are ZSL (Zoological Society of London), The National Trust, The Stroke Association, The National Garden Scheme and Buglife. Not only do each of these charities reflect on our core values, but they coordinate beautifully with our love for nature, people and the planet and have been chosen carefully because of what they mean to us.

"Supporting different charities has always been a part of our Sophie Allport story, and we are so pleased to be able to work alongside these incredible charities. Each means so much to us in different ways. Raising funds to help these causes is so vital and key so they can continue to focus on their work in making our world a better place."

Community

Supporting our community is important to us, and quite often our staff are at the heart of this. We have a variety of different ways that we help support, give back and spread kindness through the community.

  • We support staff in the community by contributing 25% to any funds raised for charities up to a value of £250 per employee per year

  • We raised £650 for Lincoln Cathedral in 2021 with our bespoke Lincoln Cathedral range where 10% of net sales are donated to the charity

  • Each Sophie Allport staff member receives a paid day in the community to volunteer with a charity or community group of their choice

  • In 2021, we launched three charity Christmas cards which supported The British Hen Welfare Trust, The Wild at Heart Foundation and Asthma + Lung UK – a combined total of £5,200 was raised

  • We support the local community, including local schools and events as well as the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance

  • We raised £1,800 in 2021 with a bespoke collection for the Ruth Strauss Foundation, which supports families facing the death of a parent & drives the need for more research into non-smoking lung cancers

£90,000 raised in 2021

We will have paid over £90,000 in 2021 to a wide range of charitable organisations, and we are so proud of this achievement. We couldn’t have done it without the support from each and every one of our customers and staff. Every penny raised makes a difference, and we are committed to continuing to support our chosen charities. We are passionate about making a difference for people, the planet and nature, and we hope you’ll join us on this journey.
