Christmas Charity Vote

It’s that time of year again when we turn our attention to friends, family and loved ones and is very much a season of giving. At Craven we recognise that sometimes people just need a little help and that’s why we are proud to announce for the second year running, we are giving away £1000 to a charity of our customers choosing, instead of giving the money to Postman Pat to deliver you a Christmas card that will only find it’s way into the recycling bin in January.

We have sent out, to all of our customers, a unique email that allows then to vote for one of the following charities.


Honeypot Children’s Charity offers both respite breaks and outreach support to young carers and vulnerable children, many of whom would otherwise have nowhere to turn, working with children from the age of 5 to 12.

Martin House Hospice

Martin House Children’s Hospice provides family led care for children with life shortening conditions. It is a place where children, young people and their families can go to stay from time to time along their journey and find support, rest and practical help.

Save the Family

Based on the outskirts of Chester, Save the Family provides residential accommodation and support for families that are homeless (or at risk of becoming homeless) and who have multiple and complex needs.


Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through their advice, support and legal services.

They are there so that no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own.


Can we also thank everyone for their support in 2015 and wish you a healthy and prosperous 2016.

Best wishes

P.S. We’ve decided that because all of the charities are very worthy causes to extend the donation to an additional £250 to the second placed charity, £150 to 3rd and £100 to 4th place (if you place an order with us in December, please quote your preferred charity at the time of ordering and we will add another vote for you).
