Charities

Marie Curie Cancer Care

MoKa Pottery’s chosen charity for 2017 is Marie Curie Cancer Care.  Throughout the year we will have items for sale featuring Daffodils, the Marie Curie logo flower, and all profits from these items will go to the charity.  We have also held a Blooming Great Tea Party at the pottery, and raised £173 on the day, with further fundraising activities in the following days taking this total to £230.  We are delighted at the response and generosity of our customers, colleagues, friends and family towards this amazing organisation.

 

A £20 donation provides one hour of nursing care at home for a terminally ill person, and £180 provides a nurse for a full 9-hour night shift.  Our family were so grateful to receive multiple nights of nursing care when Kath’s step-dad, Joe, was in his final days over Christmas 2016, and we would be delighted to pay this forward so that another family can benefit as we did.  We will track donations to Marie Curie on this page with the visual aid of daffodils.

One Daffodil = One hour of care (£20 raised), One Logo = One full night of care reached (£180 raised).

Comrie Heritage Group/Comrie Development Trust

MoKa Pottery is located in a very unique place, and we love the ties to the camp, both past and present.  The community spirit in the village of Comrie is fantastic, and even though we don’t live in the area, we do love to get involved or help where we can.

In the next few months, we will be creating a new range of keepsake ‘Nissen Hut’ ornaments, so that visitors to the camp can take home a bit of history with them.  50% of the proceeds of the sales of these items will go to the Comrie Heritage Group, who organise guided tours in the camp and are responsible for arranging the open days and events in the camp, as well as in the wider Comrie Community.

The prototype huts are currently drying and will be in the kiln soon.  

Here’s a sneak peek of the first batch.


We will post updates as the development progresses.
