Sue Ryder are going to be scouring the country to find up to ten limited edition products to add to a special featured category - "UK Handmade" - on the website... and they need your help.

Could you help us spread the word?

If you know of anyone who might want to enter this awesome competition to get their items on a UK wide website AND raise money for charity – could you share this across your network far and wide?

The Opportunity...

Sue Ryder New Goods are looking for small UK based businesses or sole traders specialising in unique hand crafted gifts.

Entrants must be able to produce 25 (possibly more depending on demand) unique 'limited edition' products that we can sell to our dedicated Sue Ryder customers through our online shop - http://shop.sueryder.org/

All products must be supplied at a wholesale price to us, meaning 100% of the profit we make on winning products goes towards our charity’s mission of providing incredible life changing care.

This is an amazing opportunity for UK crafters who would like their products to feature on a national charity shop’s website and we are now calling for entries for this new category on our website. 

Over the next few months we are going to be inviting entries, holding a national online vote via our Facebook Page, and the top ten products with the most votes will go on to feature on our website as part of this limited collection of handmade gifts...

Have you got or know of a product people would love?

Our entry guidelines are below, but what we are looking for are unique products that will compliment our existing ranges.... think vintage inspired, retro goodies, shabby chic, beautiful home and gardening gifts and traditional children's toys and games...

Visit our online shop to get an idea of what we do...http://shop.sueryder.org/

Public Vote…

All winners will be chosen by a public vote via the Facebook page, so it’s down to entrants to bang the drum and get people voting for your products and hopefully get your products and your business featured on our site...

We believe this is a fantastic way to get your products to a national market and support our charity work here at Sue Ryder...
