New hush Refuge pyjama campaign

Source By: Refuge Charity

Just to share a new campaign that we have launched with hush, a lovely clothing line that has chosen Refuge as its charity partner for this year. Hush have designed a special edition set of pyjamas and eye mask especially in support of Refuge; for every set sold for £60 hush are generously donating £52 – the equivalent of one night in a refuge for a woman and her children, as well as essential practical and emotional support. 

You can read more about the pyjamas and purchase them here

Everyone loves a set of new pyjamas for Christmas so they’d make a really lovely gift, the campaign will run till Christmas but they are likely to sell out quickly so make sure you buy a pair sooner rather than later!
