Last week we launched our fundraising campaign with leading LGBT+ youth charity, Just Like Us, in support of its work empowering young LGBT+ people to promote equality in education and the workplace across the UK.
We are donating the profits from every box of Falanghina white wine sold in Waitrose stores and online between June and the end of August 2018 to Just Like Us to assist in the charity’s mission to enable teachers and pupils across the country to tackle homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying by organising activities that celebrate LGBT+ equality in education.
To celebrate this partnership, we are hosting tastings in selected local Waitrose stores during selected Pride weekends, such as Brighton and Edinburgh.
“Why Just Like Us?” you might ask. Well, firstly, we strongly believe in the cause. Secondly, a childhood friend of mine, Daniel Gerring, is a on the board of the charity and I have seen with my own eyes how tirelessly they work towards fulfilling their mission. And finally, what could be more fun than uniting the joy of drinking craft wine like the Italians do, with the beautiful celebration of diversity that is pride season?
Boxes of our Falanghina are available from over 230 Waitrose stores across the country, including the John Lewis Foodhalls on Oxford Street and in Bluewater and can also be purchased online at waitrose.com.
