New stretch target

If we are lucky enough to exceed our £3000 target, we would firstly like to say a massive thank you to everyone for your support. This extra money will be used to develop and launch a new Creature Candy candle range, which will be available to buy on our website. We will donate 10% of the sale prices of our candles to a chosen British wildlife charity (to be decided). Perhaps you have a suggestion of where you would like this money to go. Do you have a favourite wildlife charity? Feel free to email us and let us know - lovenature@creaturecandy.co.uk

Thank you once again.

About Us

www.creaturecandy.co.uk

Creature Candy is a new small homewares and gifts business based in Kew, Surrey. The company was created by Lizzie Barker to raise awareness of Britain's declining & protected wildlife species, to inspire people to take active roles in conservation and to help raise funds for the charities that endeavour to conserve our wildlife. Lizzie (pictured above) works as a bat ecologist and created Creature Candy a year ago from the spare room of her home in Kew.

Our products feature declining or protected British wildlife species, and we aim to raise awareness of these species and promote their conservation. With all online purchases, our customers receive an information leaflet about the animal featured on their product and information about the related charity. Our regular blog keeps supporters informed about wildlife conservation projects and where our donations have been spent. 

Creature Candy proudly donates 10% of the sale price of every product to British wildlife charities, including Bat Conservation Trust, Butterfly Conservation, and Bumblebee Conservation Trust.

All our products are designed and made in the UK and we firmly believe in supporting UK businesses. Our range currently includes fine bone china mugs, tea towels, aprons, prints, handmade soaps, notebooks and postcards.  

We have a growing following on social media and we are fully supported by the charities we donate to. Links to our social media pages can be found here:

Why Crowdfunding?

We have three designs in our current range - bat, bumblebee and moth. The sales from these designs allow us to make regular donations to the Bat Conservation Trust, Butterfly Conservation, and Bumblebee Conservation Trust. Our donations help fund many worthwhile, fantastic conservation projects run by these charities and we’d love to help more charities do the same.

Therefore, we plan to launch three new designs this year - hedgehog, red squirrel and lesser spotted woodpecker, which will allow us to make donations to the following charities:

Peoples Trust for Endangered SpeciesRed Squirrel Survival TrustBritish Trust for Ornithology

With the money we raise via crowdfunding, we will be able to launch these new designs on our website, across the entire range of our products - mugs, tea towels, aprons, prints, notebooks and postcards. 10% of the sale prices will be donated to our new charities.
