Sue Ryder is very excited to announce an incredibly special competition to find the very best of the UK's handmade gifts to feature on its new Sue Ryder new goods website.
They will be scouring the country to find up to ten limited edition products to add to a special featured category called UK Handmade on its website. Craft Focus is helping spread the word. So if you know of anyone – friends, colleagues, customers, clients, followers and fans who might want to enter this awesome competition to get their items on a UK wide website, and raise money for charity then get in contact!
Sue Ryder New Goods is looking for small UK based businesses or sole traders specialising in unique hand crafted gifts.
Entrants must be able to produce 25 (possibly more depending on demand) unique 'limited edition' products that they can sell to its dedicated Sue Ryder customers through their online shop - http://shop.sueryder.org/
All products must be supplied at a wholesale price to Sue Ryder so that 100% of the profit that they make on winning products goes towards its charity's mission of providing incredible life changing care. This is an amazing opportunity for UK crafters who would like their products to feature on a national charity shop's website, and are now calling for entries for this new category on our website.
Over the next few months they're going to be inviting entries, holding a national online vote via our Facebook Page, and the top ten products with the most votes will go on to feature on its website as part of this limited collection of handmade gifts. The entry guidelines are below, but what they are looking for are unique products that will compliment its existing ranges so think vintage-inspired, retro goodies, shabby chic, beautiful home and gardening gifts and traditional children's toys and games!
How people can enter
Entries are via the competition app on its Facebook page: facebook.com/SueRyderNew.

Winners will be chosen by public vote and announced via our Facebook Page on 12th May 2014
25 of each winning product must be received by 26th May 2014 • Items will go on sale 1st June 2014
All winners will be chosen by a public vote via the Facebook page, so it's down to entrants to bang the drum and get people voting for your products and hopefully get your products and your business featured on our site.
