Over the summer, Cherry Orchard’s owner Jackie Collins and creative director, Beverley Fisher raised over £3,000 for WellChild children’s charity when the undertook the gruelling Three Peaks Challenge. It’s a charity that Cherry Orchard has supported for many years, giving royalty donations on the sales of their very popular Story Time cards for children age 1-6, among other fundraising efforts.
After enjoying an inspiring and humbling evening at the WellChild’s Children’s Award ceremony in October, Jackie was determined to find ways of further supporting the charity and so set about instigating a royalty donation arrangement on the sale of the age 16 design within its Down Memory Lane card range. The best-selling range has gone from strength to strength over the years and Jackie says: “retailers have welcomed the addition of the age 16 cards as it can be a difficult age to find the right card and gift for.”
With the matching age 16 Down Memory Lane mug being nominated for the Gift of the Year Award 2018, Jackie was also keen to thank all of her loyal customers over the years who have helped make the nostalgic card range so successful.
“There’s some special treats included in our delivery boxes over the next few weeks” says Jackie, “as a token gesture to thank customers for their support and to send a message of goodwill from us all at Cherry Orchard for the Festive Season and New Year.”
