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.

Mike’s JOGLE Challenge!

Vegetology is proudly sponsoring a brave chap called Mike Ford. He’s running the length of the UK John O'Groats to Land's End (JOGLE) via the Three Peaks which is roughly 1000 miles, starting on May 12th.. All the money Mike raises through donations will go to The Hike with Mike Foundation and Lymphoma Action.

Lymphoma Action is a charity that offers a wide range of support services for people affected by Lymphoma, including their friends, family and carers. They offer support every step of the way from receiving a Lymphoma diagnosis, through treatment and beyond. You can read more about the work of this incredible charity here.

The Hike with Mike is an incredible charity staffed and run entirely by Volunteers (of which, Vegetology's own Chris Smith is one). They provide 6 crisis counselling sessions for people, particularly men, who when they reach the very bottom and try to access help, they are faced with around a 16 week wait on the NHS which for many is too long and so very sadly they find solace in suicide. Every penny that the charity raises goes towards more and more counselling which is so awesome. You can find out more about this amazing charity here.

Go smash it Mike, we can't wait to see your progress!

Vitamin Angels

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.

Supporting our NHS and the Care Sector during the Covid-19 pandemic

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!

Notts Gymnastics Academy

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.
