Emergency Chocolate – a great gift idea.

This year Shelter has come up with a brilliant idea to raise money for the homeless at Christmas with their Emergency Chocolate bars. They are available in £5 for the 100g bar and £10 for the 200g versions. They have a pop-up store at 72 Neal Street, Seven Dials, London WC2H 9PE and it should be available in selected Shelter shops around the country.

You can also buy these online at https://cardshop.shelter.org.uk/collections/christmas-gifts

I love this idea for raising money and I really do think this makes a great corporate gift, stocking filler or a perfect gift for those people who are hard to buy for and who you typically end up giving a card and a voucher to.

I take chocolate very seriously and I can tell you that once opened the rich milk chocolate really doesn’t disappoint at all and anyone I know would be very pleased to receive this as a gift.

Order now online at https://cardshop.shelter.org.uk/collections/christmas-gifts
