Give Back Friday 2023 – what to expect from this year’s event

Give back to the community

Black Friday is one worldwide sales event that’s well known for its bargains. Traditionally beginning the Friday after the American holiday of Thanksgiving – which is always the fourth Thursday of November – the Black Friday sales generally offer a chance to grab those last Christmas gifts and save lots of pounds in the process! But, we like to do things a little differently here at So Cosy…

Forget Black Friday, it’s all about giving back

As you may have noticed during the last couple of years of events, we’ve reinvented our So Cosy Black Friday sales with a sprinkling of community spirit.

Instead of grabbing a Black Friday purchase, we encourage our customers (both new and existing) to give back to the causes that are making a difference in the local community – and we’re doing the same this year!

We’re supporting Stevenage Community Trust

Once again, we’ll be supporting Stevenage Community Trust to mark our Give Back Friday event. It’s a local charity that has done huge things throughout Stevenage, with the donations made individually and via business-led initiatives funding incredibly important work.

Stevenage Community Trust is best known for its grants, which make life easier for disadvantaged families, charities, community groups and clubs across Stevenage and its surrounding villages. Yet their work doesn’t end there, as Stevenage Community Trust explains:

“The Trust makes a real difference to the lives of needy people in and around Stevenage; from funding a life-changing piece of equipment for a disabled child, giving community grants that will benefit groups of people of all ages, through to our emergency grant-giving programme for people suffering severe financial hardship.”

15% off for you and funds for a good cause

We’ll give back with every purchase you make during this period to raise vital funds for local charity Stevenage Community Trust.

And it all starts earlier this year!

Another bonus of shopping with us is that you get to grab your cosy bargain (and support an amazing charity) a little earlier.
