Strathcarron Hospice is an incredible service for the terminally ill. The hospice provides specialist palliative care and expert end of life care. As well as this, they are actively involved in research and education of palliative care. It takes a very strong and dependable person to take on the opportunity to help an ill person achieve their personal goals and wish list requests, before their limited time runs out. But with good symptom control and the support of the carers, they can encourage people to think and talk about what matters most to them.
What we do to help?
As you're probably already aware, we support and often sponsor various events, with charities being our main goal to represent every year. During our production process a lot of fabric is wasted; due to transfer error or excess material left over - that isn't big enough to use again. We can supply Strathcarron with up to 10 bags worth of 'waste' fabric in a week when we're in full swing! They then take this to our local charity shop to recycle, in exchange for funds to invest into the hospice's voluntary services.
Eco-Friendly Fabric: our fabric is from Belgium (OoOoOo fancy)! The majority make up of the textiles in the fabric is polyester (100% recycled from the Polyester chain) - it needs to be polyester in order to be sublimated.
We know that eco-friendly and recycled products and services are important to people, more now than ever before, and we continue to keep this as part of our production process for the future
