Vintage Shrewsbury is planning to chalk up an amazing total for the NSPCC

Annie Sloan Stockists in Shrewsbury are holding a special late night event on Friday 21st November from 6:00 – 8:00 pm at ‘Vintage’ on Wyle Cop to help raise a whopping £25,000 for the NSPCC.

‘Vintage’ is inviting shoppers from Shrewsbury to enjoy some mulled wine and nibbles whilst browsing their unique pieces of painted furniture created using Annie Sloan’s decorative paint, Chalk Paint™ as well as their wider range of stock, including some great Christmas gift ideas, in a relaxed evening atmosphere. The shop is also hosting an Annie Sloan ‘workshop’ during the evening (booking required). With advice on colour selection and techniques, the workshop will give budding interior designers the confidence to use Annie Sloan’s paint and waxes at home. All visitors to the shop during the evening will also have the opportunity to participate in a drop-in “decorate your own wooden Christmas decoration” DIY workshop to encourage visitors to help raise vital funds for the NSPCC.

‘Vintage’ is one of over 250 Annie Sloan Stockists across the UK who have joined forces in a bid to help raise £25,000 for the NSPCC, UK’s leading children’s charity specialising in child protection.  Keep up with the news on this special event on Facebook, Twitter and Instragram by following #AnnieSloanLate.

Tristan Haynes, co-owner of ‘Vintage’ said, “We have been part of the Annie Sloan Stockist community since 2011. As a group, the UK stockists collectively decided that if we joined forces we could potentially raise a lot of money for charity. We choose the NSPCC because of their work protecting some of the most vulnerable individuals in our local community which is all the more poignant at what should be a special and happy time of year for all children.”

Sara Williams, NSPCC regional corporate fundraising manager said, “We are delighted that Vintage Shrewsbury Ltd. has chosen to support the NSPCC. The money raised will help us to run our vital services and helplines that are so often a lifeline for vulnerable children and young people. It will make a massive difference to the lives of children in Shrewsbury and across the UK. On behalf of all the children I would like to say thank you to Vintage, staff and customers. Ninety per cent of our funding comes from donations and we simply couldn’t continue to provide our services without the continued generosity of supporters like Vintage.”
