This gorgeous Orla Kiely bag is made from natural jute and cotton and is the perfect sized shopper, with a solid bottom and sturdy handles. It's also a limited edition bag that has only gone on sale this December.
If you want to get hold of one, then you need to (rush) down to Tesco's where you can pick one up for only £4!
Orla Kiely has designed these reuseable shopping bags (they're not at all flimsy and feel and look a lot nicer than the previous Cath Kidston ones) as part of Tesco's partnership with the charity CLIC Sargent and 50p of every sale is split evenly between the charity and Orla's own charity that provides bursarys for textile students at the Royal College of Art.
CLIC Sargent provides incredibly important care for children (and their families) that are having to cope with the awful diagnosis and the subsequent treatment of cancer.
These bags are a complete win win. The design is gorgeous and the bag is useful, plus by buying one you are helping to raise money for a charity that does so much good. This is nothing but a good idea, you get to own an Orla Kiely bag (that sports her label) for only £4 and you get to help such a worthy cause.
And it gets better, because in the New Year there will be even more limited Orla Kiely prints available.
Obviously I love the bags but the really important part of this is the charity CLIC Sargent. As they say on the Tesco's website
"Around 10 families a day are told that their child has cancer and treatment can last for up to three years. Julie Worrall, Tesco Campaign Manager at CLIC Sargent, said: “As Tesco Charity of the Year we aim to raise £5 million to help children with cancer spend more time at home and less time in hospital. The money we receive when customers buy Orla’s bags will help to fund CLIC Sargent nurses who coordinate children’s care at home so they can live as normal a life as possible.”
If you want to donate and help children with cancer (and if you can, please do) then as well as buying a bag you can visit www.clicsargent.org.uk or call the Child Cancer Helpline on 0800 197 0068.
