Here at Wigglys we are grateful for your support and really pleased that our farm continues to despatch all over the UK.
We are seeing many groups and small charities struggling for volunteers and funds because of Covid 19. We have decided to focus our efforts on helping wildlife charities and community gardens to survive and thrive where we can.
To this end, We are giving £1 for every online order placed over £30.
We have also added a Charity Box to our Shopping Cart screen, so if you feel able to support please add the amount you are happy to give in our charity box, and we will ensure this is passed on.
We will be updating our Blog, Facebook and emails regularly with amounts raised and which charities we have been giving to.
Find details of all 25 Charities we've helped so far below :)
