Crabtree & Evelyn Meets Macmillan

 As you all know I'm a massive fan of Crabtree & Evelyn and when it comes to their hand creams I don't think anyone can beat them. Recently the lovely Jamie (Crabtree & Evelyns PR) got in touch with me about a promotion that they're currently running which is to help support Macmillan cancer. My grandad passed away from cancer so it's a charity very close to my heart and one that I'm more than happy to give a little space on my blog to help. Macmillan are an amazing charity who provide specialist support, health care, infromation and financial support to people who are affected by cancer. They don't just deal with the medical needs of people coping with cancer, they're also there for the social and emotional issues that come with dealing with cancer. They also help campaign for better care for people with cancer. One of Macmillan's massive fundraisers is that they have The Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning where they ask people across the UK to hold a coffee morning where donations are made to Macmillan. In 2013, 154,000 people signed up and raised a record breaking £20 million for charity. So lets see if we can break this record again this year!

 What Crabtree & Evelyn are doing is they're having the 'World's Biggest Coffee Morning' on the 26th of September throughout all of their stores. The stores will be providing cake, tea and biscuits to customers who donate towards the charity and they will also be offering a variety of things such as:-

  • Free gift wrapping on any products that you buy
  • A free Crabtree & Evelyn mug when you spend £25 (which is worth £12.50)
  • A 50g hand therapy for just £3 including a 50p donation to Macmillan
  • Lots of products for you to try
  • The most exciting part (I think) is the free luxury hand treatments.
I have had the pleasure of having one of these hand treatments and it's such a lovely, relaxing thing to have done. It's really calming having someone massage hand creams and lotions into your hands so that's a reason to pop along to your nearest store in itself!

 Selected full price products from their Lavender & Verbana collection will be available to buy and a £1 donation will be made for every one of these products being sold throughout September in store and online.The products that will lead to the £1 donation are:-
  • Cologne both 100ml (£35) and 30ml (£20)
  • Body Lotion 250ml (£16)
  • Bath & Shower Gel 250ml (£15)
  • Hand Therapy 100g ( £15)
  • Shampoo 250ml (£12)
  • Conditioner 250ml (£12)
  • Body Cream 250g (£22)
On the following products from the Lavender & Verbana travel products a 50p donation will be made:-
  • Soap 100g (£6)
  • Hand Therapy 25g (£5)
  • Conditioner 50ml (£5)
  • Shampoo 50ml (£5)
  • Body Lotion 50ml (£5)
  • Bath & Shower Gel 50ml (£5)
 I have tried both the Verbana & Lavender soap*, body wash* and the hand cream* aswell as their Pomegranate hand cream* and I can vouch for the fact that they are super moisturising and smell incredible. I've actually reviewed one of Crabtree & Evelyns hand creams (review here) if you want to read more about how delicious they are.

 A 50p donation will also be made for any of the travel sized hand creams that are purchased during September. The handcreams are really luxurious so you can now do your bit for charity whilst trying out a fantastic hand cream, who knew being good to charity could be so rewarding!

Will you be popping in to your local store?

Lots of Love,
