Charity Involvement

Amefa & Richardson Sheffield are proud to be actively supporting Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice & Marmalade Trust

We have created a Cutlery & Knife Recycle program in all of our stores, which offers 25% Off Amefa & Richardson Sheffield products when recycling old cutlery and knives in store. All money raised from the weighing in of the old metals is equally divided between Bluebell Wood & Marmalade Trust.

We hope that by offering this recycle incentive we can help tackle unneccessary pollution with landfill, as well as offering support to charities that need it.

Amefa is also a member of Bluebell Wood's 365 Business Club.

Bluebell Wood

Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice cares for children and young adults with life-shortening and life-threatening conditions, as well as caring for their families. They currently support approximately 250 families, in their own homes and at the hospice in North Anston, Sheffield.

Bluebell Wood opened in 2008 and is surrounded by six-and-a-half acres of land. The rooms, activities and facilities cater to families who need relaxation and privacy.

Each day at the hospice the staff at Bluebell Wood create special memories for children, young adults and the families who visit them, so they can treasure those memories of the time they have together.

The cost to do this per year is over £4 million, meaning all fundraising and support is vital to keeping their doors open.

Marmalade Trust

Marmalade Trust are a Bristol and South Gloucestershire based charity who aim to find and support isolated people to reconnect them with society, and enable them to enjoy better lives.

With the support of volunteers, businesses and community partners, they provide Christmas day lunches in local venues for people who would otherwise be on their own, as well as helping to raise awareness of loneliness and how it impacts people’s lives every day.

Christmas is the busiest time of year, and they use it as an indicator for those that are the most isolated. They’ve found that those who are alone on Christmas Day are usually experiencing loneliness throughout the year.

On Christmas Day, all volunteers work hard to put on a great Christmas Day lunch in a local restaurant, giving people company and friendship for the day who need it most. Over 100 volunteers will be helping to make the day a success over the festive period. 

Here’s what one of the guests from last year said about the Christmas Day lunch:

I should like to thank you most sincerely for the lunch on Christmas Day. I met some very nice people and the members of your team were a sheer delight, they never stopped smiling and couldn’t have been more welcoming. The box of goodies was the icing on the cake and was a wonderful gesture. My thanks also to Terry who kindly picked me up and dropped me off.

We’re pleased to support the team at Marmalade Trust so they can continue the great work they do to bring some festive cheer to those who would otherwise be alone on Christmas Day.
