Rapidly Growing Edinburgh Based Craft Kit Business Partners With Beekeeper Charity
By Emily Peagram 23 Feb 2021
Paraffle Embroidery, an online embroidery kit business that is experiencing rapid growth during the pandemic announced that they have signed their fourth charity partnership, this time with the Scottish Beekeeper’s association charity.
Paraffle creates unique paisley based designs, and sells kits containing all of the materials required to embroider the design. More than 10% of profits are donated to various charities - over £7000 since June 2020 has been donated.
Paraffle will now donate a fixed sum from the sale of every bee kit sold on their website. Donations range from £10 to £14, and kits range from £21.50 to £29.50.
Some goodies from the Scottish Beekeepers’ Association charity are included in the Bee kits - including a packet of bee friendly wildflower seeds and a cute bee charm!
Sammy Bishop, founder of Paraffle: “This is the fourth charity partnership Paraffle have made, and continues the business’s aim of donating more than 10% of profits annually to charity. The Scottish Beekeepers’ association has supported beekeepers in Scotland for over 100 years, and I’m delighted to be able to support them.”
Phil McAnespie, President of the Scottish Beekeepers’ association charity (Charity registration: SC009345) says: “The Scottish Beekeepers’ Association (SBA) is delighted to be associated with Paraffle, a Scottish company whose ethos is to encourage and support others to develop their skill level, through their embroidery enterprise and support charities who adopt these core activities. We are most grateful to Paraffle for choosing us as one of their nominated charities.”
The other charity partnerships Paraffle have are with Steps to Hope, Link Education Scotland, and Inti Wara Yassi.
