The Vegetology Foundation
The Vegetology Foundation is a fund we have set up to support a range of charities, community groups, events and organisations who are committed to giving back to the planet.
Vegetology supports Framework, which is a leading homelessness charity based in UK and helps over 18,000 people a year.
Vegetology Director and co-founder Chris Smith explains:
"Framework’s activities make a huge difference to the lives of many people in need of a helping hand. They not only offer individual support, but also run campaigns to get to the root causes of homelessness and strive towards ending it. The ambitious ‘Building Better Futures’ campaign is something we’re proud to support”
At Vegetology we aim to provide effective nutritional solutions to everyone. However, millions of people around the world don’t have access to critical nutrients. That’s why we’ve decided to partner with Vitamin Angels - a charity organisation that provides vitamins and minerals to millions of children and pregnant women around the world.
Each year, Vitamin Angels provides life-saving nutritional support to over 70 million children and mums in 74 countries, including the UK. It costs just 20p to reach one child with vitamins for an entire year! With your help, we can change the lives of millions of children around the world.
We’re delighted to be working with Unicef and in August 2019 we visited Unicef HQ in London to give a £5000 donation from Vegetology. We are proud to support their amazing and vital work.
Foodbanks continue to play essential roles in the community. We were delighted to donate £2000 towards the amazing work done by Middlesbrough Foodbank for the local community there. Middlesbrough was hit very hard during the Covid-19 Pandemic, and this brilliant organisation helped many families in need.
We were delighted to donate £1000 and a load of Vitashine 1000iu tablets to Mansfield Soup Kitchen, an amazing charity that supports homeless and vulnerable individuals in North Nottinghamshire. Small local charities like this have been extra busy during the Covid-19 Pandemic, especially during the winter months.
The Covid-19 pandemic put a real strain on our wonderful NHS staff. They were exposed to Coronavirus on a daily basis and putting themselves and their health in harm's way to help others. We donated over 20,000 bottles of Vitashine Vitamin D3 tablets to NHS (and other emergency services, including the Met Police) to help give their immune systems a bit of extra support.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, we donated 20,000 bottles of Vitamin D3 across the Health and Care sector. As well as donating to the NHS and other emergency services, we donated bottles to Care homes and Care workers across many regions in UK. This included London, Merseyside, Nottinghamshire, Teesside and West Sussex. With Public Health England recommending individuals take Vitamin D to help support the immune system during the pandemic, we had to help!
Local to our Nottingham office, this amazing Academy delivers classes suited to all abilities. It is a registered charity and operates from funding and donations. We were delighted to support the Academy in July 2019 with a £1000 donation towards a new track.
Here are the boys at local football team Moorgreen Colts Blue U11s showing off their new Vegetology-sponsored training tops. They should keep the lads warms during the autumn and winter training sessions!
