|Every jewellery box has some broken trinkets or outdated pieces, so why not re-love those items and help raise money for charity? We've launched a “jewellery amnesty”, inviting donations of old, broken or unwanted jewellery to be re-created into exciting, contemporary pieces to raise money for research charity, Breast Cancer Now.
Students from the Advanced Design & Craft Jewellery Course at City of Bath College, and Fashion Design students from Coventry University, will be re-modelling pieces into new designs which will be sold for Breast Cancer Now.
Donations of old or unwanted jewellery can be made at any fabulous store or event and every customer who makes a donation to the Fabulous Reloved project will also receive a 15% OFF voucher to say thank you.
To help get the project off the ground, we’ll be contributing £1,000 of old stock every year.
Owner Jo Stroud says, “The Reloved project enables us to breathe new life into old and unwanted jewellery, whilst doing good in so many ways. We are able to support jewellery design students who find the cost of materials to be increasingly challenging, and allow them to give free reign to their creativity and imagination. Customers feel like they are doing something worthwhile with unwanted items, and they love to see how their jewellery reappears in a different form over time."
“Most of our customers and staff are women, and some of us will be at risk of developing breast cancer at some point in our lives. In fact, some of our customers are breast cancer survivors, as we know from carrying out various fund-raising activities over the years. If we can make even a small difference to on-going research into prevention and cure, then our Reloved project will be very worthwhile.”
For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org or keep an eye on our social media pages for information about our next event. If you would like to donate jewellery you can do so at any fabulous store. We also run the Race for Life in Leamington, Solihull and Bath yearly (June/July) if you'd like to join us speak to your local store.
Breast Cancer, we're coming to get you!
