On Friday 19th June, Annie Sloan Stockists across the world opened their shops after hours and hosted special events to raise money for charity, as part of the global event #AnnieSloanLate!
#AnnieSloanLate was a night (and in some cases a day) to celebrate and support local businesses. Communities worked together and got together to run demos, hold markets, auction off furniture, host tea parties, serve food, drink Pimms, eat cake and raise money for charity.
In the UK many Stockists raised money for the NSPCC – a brilliant charity who are working to stop cruelty to children. The Ministry of Upholstery, one of my Stockists in Manchester, UK, raised over £1200 for the NSPCC which will go a very long way! My Stockists across other parts of the world supported their own chosen charities, that sat close to their hearts.
I'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part in the second #AnnieSloanLate event, especially the Stockists who worked so hard to host such fantastic events. Last year we raised a whopping £10,000 for the NSPCC, let's hope we've reached that target again!
