Charities

Comrie Heritage Group / Comrie Development Trust

MoKa Pottery is located in a 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 now we actually live in the village, we love getting involved.

We now have a new range of keepsake ‘Cultybraggan Hut’ ornaments, so that visitors to the camp can take home a bit of history with them.  A percentage of the profits of the sales of the huts sold from our shop on-site will go to the Comrie Development Trust who, through the Comrie Heritage Group, 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.

 

 

Marie Curie Cancer Care

MoKa Pottery’s chosen charity for 2017 was Marie Curie Cancer Care.  Throughout the year we had items for sale featuring Daffodils, the Marie Curie logo flower, and all profits from these items went to the charity.  We 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 £235.  We were 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 are delighted to pay this forward so that another family can benefit as we did.  We tracked 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).
