Crafter’s Companion’s corporate social responsibilities (CSR) team voted for the Bradley Lowery Foundation after the company’s founder, Sara Davies MBE, was unveiled as the charity’s newest patron last year.

The company have organised a number of events supporting the Bradley Lowery Foundation throughout the year, including a Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge, a summer fundraiser and a special Christmas campaign. The team will set up in-store donations at three Crafter’s Companion’s UK stores and will participate in several of the charity’s fundraisers.

Sara said: “I’m really proud that the team has decided to name the Bradley Lowery Foundation as Crafter’s Companion’s charity of the year. It’s a local charity that does fantastic work on a national scale and their work has enabled poorly children to receive much-needed therapy, equipment and life-changing treatment.”
