Family Firm Launches Glass Angel For Children’s Charity

A family firm has created a Glitter Angel to raise funds for a leading Scottish children’s charity.

Bridge of Allan-based giftware company Angels’ Share Glass made the bespoke angel for NSPCC Scotland to promote their Christmas Star appeal.

The Angel’s design features a star, is filled with glitter and comes with an oak stave stand which has a Highland tartan insert.

Angels’ Share Glass Managing Director Karen Somerville came up with the design after the charity asked the firm to create a special angel for them.

She said:

When the NSPCC approached us for help promoting their Christmas Star appeal we were delighted as we are always keen to collaborate with worthwhile causes and charities.

It’s an ideal partnership as the NSPCC do so much good work for children in Scotland and we are very much a family business with a number of parents working for us. It’s a charity which is close to our hearts and we want to give back where we can.”

Head of Fundraising at NSPCC Scotland Paul Cockram said:

Angels’ Share Glass is a family company who believe in supporting children to get the best possible start in life and we are proud to be working together to help achieve this.”

A spokeswoman for NSPCC Scotland said the charity is delighted to be working with the firm and sales of the Glitter Angel will support their Christmas appeal “to bring light into every childhood.”

Funding raised from the Glitter Angels will support the work they carry out in communities across Scotland including Childline, the Speak Out Stay Safe schools programme and advice and support work with families.

Angels’ Share Glass will donate half the cost of the £35 Glitter Angel to NSPCC Scotland and customers will receive a receipt for their donation.
