Why now more than ever we need to take care of each other

2020 has no doubt been a year that many of us would like to forget. But in the midst of everyday life being turned upside down, being estranged from those we love most, and suffering the emotional and financial hardships that have gone hand-in-hand with the Covid-19 pandemic, there’s a silver lining…

A nation that’s closer than ever

We’ve never been so far away from our nearest and dearest yet we’ve experienced a sense of community and union that we’ve never felt before. As a nation, we’ve bonded over the shared burden of these unprecedented and uncertain times, and we’re all the more stronger for it.

But as our fight against Covid-19 continues, one thing’s for certain, now more than ever we need to take care of each other. Here at So Cosy, we’re doing just that, with fabulous discounts for you and something a little extra for the community.

Giving back to the local community

From Thursday 26th to Monday 30th November 2020, we’ll be donating 5% of what you pay for our stunning, handcrafted products to Stevenage Community Trust.

As a Stevenage resident, the Trust is close to our heart. Founded by Stevenage’s first female mayor Hilda Lawrence, the independent charity has been making a difference to local people’s lives since 1990.

During this time, the Trust has distributed some £1.4 million of grants to help those who need support most, working with charities, community groups, individuals and families in crisis.

Their work is also essential at this time of year as the winter weather sets in and temperatures plummet outside. The charity provides vital help with heating bills for the vulnerable – after all everyone should have a warm home during winter – and that’s one of the reasons why we chose to support the Stevenage Community Trust. But this and the rest of their work is only possible with the help of their generous and loyal supporters.

We’ll let our very own Vilija explain more about why supporting the community and all those who live in it is important to So Cosy:

“To support a local charity is very important to us, especially in these difficult times. So Cosy will support those who are most vulnerable in our community, as it is these vulnerable people that were hit the hardest by this lockdown and the previous. By purchasing from So Cosy you will support an independent business too so it’s win-win for everyone!”

There’s some great savings for you too!

We understand that the Covid-19 pandemic has affected every single one of us, but this doesn’t mean you have to forgo the little luxuries that make life extra special this season. That’s why between Thursday 26th to Monday 30th November, we’ll also be giving all our customers a fabulous 15% discount across the So Cosy range.
