In addition to money we raise through the sale of products, we also make significant donations to schools, hospitals and other local community causes. Phoenix Trading staff take part in fundraising activities too, including the self-purchase and donation of presents at Christmas time to less fortunate children, via Wandsworth Council Children’s Services. Phoenix artists also offer their support and talents to fundraising initiatives by donating designs.
