About Us

Our Community

For over 30 years now our company has selected some unique charities to offer a “helping hand”. We have an emphasis on supporting those close to our heart or those that are associated with communities we are involved with.

 

Look Good Feel Better (supporting woman with cancer)

In past years we have supported through different events, the Look Good…Feel Better charity.  This wonderful charity provides great support to women with cancer.  Workshops are set up to offer “make overs” in order to make women – Look Good…Feel Better.  Today we continue to support by donating products to be given away to women who take part and enjoy these workshops.

 

 

Matakana

Around our local community we regularly enjoy supporting some unique groups and special events. Hard to list them all!

These include.

Through the sale of Les Blackwell’s Gardeners Hand Cream this has helped support the AFSG and we now jointly with Les & Bev Blackwell have a new charitable project underway. 

 

Coast & Country Clean Up

We are very fortunate to be surrounded by stunning countryside, coastal beaches and tidal rivers, with a collection of beautiful islands. Launching this summer (2019/20) we are arranging some special events/days which focus on collecting rubbish in these regions and doing our part to keep these environments clean and tidy.

 

Alzheimer's New Zealand / Christmas Candle

Around 25 years ago the founder of the company, Colyn Devereux-Kay, created the company's first Christmas candle which went on to be an annual special release. Today the company honors the founder by launching a limited-edition Christmas Candle each year with 15% of the sale going to Alzheimer’s New Zealand to assist research.

 

Paddle for Hope (Breast Cancer Research charity event)

We have enjoyed entering a team over the years and donating products for this unique and fun event supporting a great cause.
