geoskincare and The Natural Skincare Company have teamed up with the Dame Vera Lynn Trust, a UK charity providing a specialist service for families with young children who have cerebral palsy and other motor learning disabilities.
£1 from the sale of every geoskincare product sold through The Natural Skincare Company website, will go directly to the charity from the beginning of May until the end of October 2012.
The Trust’s President, Dame Vera Lynn, says, “For a family to be suddenly and unexpectedly faced with the news that their child is affected by cerebral palsy is a life-altering experience. The special attention that their child will need in his or her early years is woefully lacking in the public sector. Early intervention is crucial.”
The money raised from the geoskincare donations will go towards helping raise the £660,000 required this year to ensure that the vital and much needed service that the School for Parents provides can continue. All the services are provided free of charge and no statutory funding is received. The Dame Vera Lynn Trust relies entirely on the support of the community to ensure that families can continue to receive the help and support they need.
Amanda McGillivray from The Natural Skincare Company, the UK distributor of geoskincare says,
“I’ve been privileged to see firsthand the incredible work done by the Dame Vera Lynn Trust and know what a positive difference it makes to the lives of young children and their parents. As a mum, a businesswoman and someone who lives little more than a mile away from the School for Parents, I feel very strongly that I want to do whatever I personally can to help them raise the vital funds they need to keep this wonderful service going.”
