At Smiffys we believe in the power of collaboration to create change. By harnessing the potential of our technology, our workforce, and our organisation, we're strengthening local communities and supporting a sustainable future. We’re committed to the local and wider community, from where we owned our first head office in Gainsborough to our worldwide charity efforts in Chipata, Zambia.
We're passionate about the importance of charitable work. We know that across our diverse and committed staff members there are many people who want to make a difference. With this in mind, we’ve decided that we can all make a huge difference by supporting a number of different charities throughout the year.
SOS Children's Villages Charity
This global charity provides direct care for orphaned and abandoned children worldwide. Smiffys are delighted to partner with SOS Children's latest project - the building of a new Children's Village in Chipata, Zambia. We’ve been partnered with SOS Children's Villages since September 2012 with a pledge to raise enough funds to build a 'Smiffys House' for ten children and a dedicated Mother. We smashed our target and built the house, and we continue to raise money through other staff activities to ensure that the Smiffys House will continue to flourish.
From dressing up and bake sales to competitions, we believe that there are many fun ways of supporting serious causes and helping those in need. The money raised from our continued efforts is collected securely in our JustGiving page.
A message from our Chairman...
"We have over 120 years of business knowledge.
We expand into new avenues year on year, and for 4 years we’ve been named in The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200. This is a fantastic achievement and a real milestone in our company's history. Despite our company expansion and global domination of the fancy dress industry, we remain a family business, which not only supports its employees but those in the local and international community, too. We are extremely proud to be able to name SOS Children's Villages as our charity partner and help those much less fortunate than ourselves.
Smiffys is a company I'm extremely proud of.'"
