This year has brought a whirlwind of emotions and now more than ever have we at Mani-HQ been forced to face loneliness especially amongst the elderly. Some of us have lost loved ones during lockdown, and others have had to keep their distance from the people who have raised them and made them who they are.

That is why we wanted more than every to say Merry Christmas in our own Mani-way, by bring you these beautiful wee Christmas crackers, that not only will be the perfect Christmas stocking fillers but for every cracker bought, 100% of the profits will go to the brilliant charity Campaign to End Loneliness.

Partnering with them is a small, ultimately insignificant, attempt to make a positive impact on a shared pain for the whole team. However, if we can raise a bit of money and nudge a few people to pick up the phone it will mean a lot.

Thank you for playing your part and feel free to spread the word!

A little bit more about the Campaign to end loneliness

The Campaign to End Loneliness believe that people of all ages need connections that matter.

There are nine million lonely people in the UK and four million of them are older people. Many older people find constant loneliness hardest to overcome. They lack the friendship and support we all need.

That is why the Campaign to End Loneliness exists, to encourage your family and friends in a light-hearted way to commit to call someone and do the same as together we can end loneliness!
