Lucy and Tamsin are the amazing women behind BundleBeds, who turned a manufacturing nightmare into helping raise money for treatment to save a little boys life.

Their sleep-anywhere bed kits raised an incredible £1,290 for Solving Kids’ Cancer, in just 1 month and has helped send Teddy to New York for his life saving treatment.

When Kimberley set up Humble Crumble, a pop up street food and crumble bar, it was super important to her that her business was sustainable and socially conscious from day one. She donates 20p to Friends of the Earth for each crumble sold.

Tash runs her own small business, Hatchling Makes, creating these awesome geometric animal designs. Since her art is dedicated to all kinds of wildlife, she makes it her mission to give back to the environment and donates 10% of her profits.

So far she’s supported five charities — and raised over £500 since joining! Not only is this an incredible achievement for the causes she’s supported, but she’s also seen a huge uplift in sales.

Work for Good helps businesses like Bundlebeds, Humble Crumble and Hatchlings Makes donate to the charities and causes they care about via an online giving platform.
