"Learn to light a candle in the darkest moments of someone’s life. Be the light that helps others see.”

Throughout the year, we read many articles via Social Media of about individual people who suffering from illness, or circumstances making them feel alone or extremely depressed. We appreciate we cannot help everyone, but we do deliver ‘Little Acts of Kindness’ to individuals just letting them know they are not alone and that they are in our thoughts. A beautifully wrapped gift is sent via courier direct to their door, together with a personal message to let them know they are not alone.

Every Allumi purchase helps us to help others with acts of kindness. Christmas is usually a festivity of celebrating and indulging with friends and family, but sadly some families are struggling during this current climate and rely on the support from others.
We filled a shopping trolley with groceries and essential items and delivered these to Blackburn Food Bank where volunteers are doing a remarkable job to support families in the community,
