Charities close to home
With our Head Office based in Havant on the South Coast, we decided to support four local charities to help give them what they needed over the Christmas period; a cold, lonely and difficult period for many in need. Working with Havant Young Carers, Southern Domestic Abuse Services, Step by Step and The Munch Project at Park Community School, we were able to start making a real impact in the local community by donating food, clothing and essential toiletries for men, women and babies who needed them most.
What’s coming up this year?
As well as another great collaboration with the Prince’s Trust and continuing Thanks for Giving and our work in the local community, we’ve got loads more to shout about this year too.
GGGI and WAP partnership
We’re continuing our partnership with the Global Ghost Gear Initiative (GGGI), diving specialists Fourth Element and the World Animal Protection (WAP) to help clean up our oceans. The Global Ghost Gear Initiative (GGGI) work together with the World Animal Protection to find solutions to the problem of lost and abandoned fishing gear worldwide, which pollute our oceans and harm our wildlife.
We’re also teaming up with Fourth Element for the second year running on another exciting swimwear range, which is made using recycled nylon from 'Ghost' fishing nets, abandoned by fishing vessels after snagging on reefs and wrecks. The Ghost Fishing Project enlists teams of divers to remove these nets and to bring them to the surface, where they are recycled and used to make the swimwear range. 100% of the profits from this product will be split between the FatFace Foundation and the World Animal Protection charities.
