LKB: Our Charity And Community Work

At LKB, we strive to do more to strengthen communities and empower women, which we continue to do through working closely with charities.

We’ve worked with Women for Women International, The Prince’s Trust, Mind, Young Womens Trust, SmartWorks and more. Raising over £48,000 for 2022, and hope to only add to that for 2023.

The Charities We Work With

At LKB, we work with a few chosen charities, with a focus on helping young people and women reach their full potential. We regularly raise donations to help fund their work, but also strive to work collaboratively with these charities that are close to our hearts.

  • Women for Women International is a charity that supports marginalised women in conflict-zones through donations and vocational training.

  • Smartworks support women in the UK with career coaching and dressing, in order to get them into work.

  • The Prince’s Trust focus their efforts on helping young people reach their full potential through support in education, employment and business.

  • Young Women’s Trust work to support young women in the UK with confidence and employability skills.

  • Mind is a charity that supports anyone experiencing a mental health problem. They campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.

What We’ve Done So Far

International Women’s Day is an important day to celebrate and empower women across the world. To mark the day, we helped to raise awareness and donated 10% Women for Women International and The Prince’s Trust. Raising £5000 for each charity in total.

We also worked with Women for Women International to raise awareness of their work this Giving Tuesday, giving 10% of all sales for that day, ultimately raising £6,486.

For 2023, we’re donating 20% of sales from 8th March to the 31st March to the Prince’s Trust from four key products in our collection.

We marked key occasions with charity, for the Platinum Jubilee LKB donated 10% across the weekend to The Young Women’s Trust, raising £14,700. On the sad news of Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II passing, we donated £10,000 to the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust - a charity she was patron of.

To celebrate the HRH Duchess Of Cambridge’s 40th birthday we donated £2000 to Mind, a charity she continues to support.

Beyond monetary donations, we give some of our deadstock to charities such as SmartWorks and Women for Women International.

This meant we were able to donate 100 samples to SmartWorks’ annual pop-up pre-loved sale, to help them raise money to continue their work supporting women. We also held a stall for the Women for Women International’s car boot sale, raising a further £3742 for the charity.

Looking forward to the coming year, we hope to only add more to the list of work we have done to support and empower women and young people in our community and across the world.

Beyond just donations, this year marks the first year where we will launch our Employee Volunteering Scheme. This allows each member of staff to take one paid day of leave a year to volunteer at a chosen charity.
