We will send your submission links on or before the 15th September, if this is not received please email us.
This is all about the charity, so everyone who donates will receive a medal please note the medal will take approximately 4 weeks from launch (13.09.23), and will be sent as soon as they arrive with us, as this has been launched so quickly that manufacture of the medals will start tomorrow.
The Turkiye and Syria appeal was so successful we managed to donate almost £1200 in the first 5 days, (Please see product images)direct to the Red Cross, UNICEF and ActionAid we will be donating just as quickly this time, to get this to the front line as quickly as possible.
Even if we can just donate a fraction of what we achieved as a collective last time it will be worth it.
