We're incredibly excited to announce that starting this December, Potage will be supporting The Prince's Trust, Women Supporting Women campaign.
The idea for potage came about in 2011 after a conversation with my brother. I was 24 at the time and he inspired me to have the confidence to start my own business. I was lucky enough to have a mum who said I could use her kitchen, a dad who sat with me for hours to come up with the name 'potage' and two brothers who have always been there to motivate me when at times I felt exhausted and lonely.
The Prince's Trust believes that every young person should have the chance to embrace exciting opportunities. They help 11 to 30 year-olds who are unemployed or struggling at school to transform their lives. It empowers young people through free life-changing programmes, which supports them develop key skills, while boosting their confidence and motivation so they can continue to dream big. More than three in four will achieve greatness, moving into jobs, education and training.
Women Supporting Women is a passionate group within The Prince's Trust who are committed to changing the lives of young women. Their mission is simple: to provide the right help to nurture, empower and inspire young women to build their own futures through employment, self-employment, education or training.
As a company we’ve committed to raising £15,000 over the next 3 years for the Women Supporting Women campaign and to launch our support we've put together a range of Artisan British Christmas Hampers as well as a totally bespoke option. The hampers bring together some of our favourite cheeses, salami, chutney, crackers, chocolates and much more. Available to order with free delivery to any central London postcode, simply select a 1 hour delivery slot at checkout. We'll be donating 10% of all profit from our hampers to The Prince's Trust, Women Supporting Women campaign.
Thank you for your support. This is just the beginning for us, in future we hope to support one or two other charities alongside The Prince's Trust.
