Hay Hampers marks 35 years with charity drive and art initiatives
Hay Hampers celebrated 35 years in business and supported Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning by launching a brand new hamper. Sales of each Chari-Tea hamper will result in a £5 donation to the cancer charity.
The Lincolnshire business aims to raise £5,000 for Macmillan by Christmas. Gabriele Da Re, managing director, Hay Hampers said: “It’s our way to celebrate the 35th anniversary of Hay Hampers, sharing joyful, sweet moments with our customers and helping raise money for people with cancer.”
In another initiative to celebrate its anniversary, Hay has converted four shipping containers into works of art. The refurbished containers have been decorated by two Italian students, Anita Giacomin and Edoardo Barriviera who came to the UK on a European scholarship to improve their English and to create and showcase a piece of artwork. Once refurbished, cleaned and decorated, the four recycled containers will house additional storage space in time for Hay’s busy Christmas period.
