I am the founder, designer and goldsmith of the luxury jewellery brand Roseanna Croft Jewellery. I’ve decided it’s time to give back to charities that have helped me and my business over the last 18 months. Without them I wouldn’t be where I am today.
My start-up business and handmade jewellery brand have been supported by The Prince’s Trust since the get go, which makes this special to me.
After securing a place in the 2017 London Marathon I felt it was an excellent opportunity to give back to 2 charities that mean a lot to me.
The Prince’s Trust carry out amazing work for young people and aspiring entrepreneurs. I moved to Derbyshire wanting to work towards my dream of owning my own jewellery brand. With no knowledge on starting a business, little finances and personal problems that come with relocating, I needed help. The Prince’s Trust has helped in every way and is continuing to do so. I want to give back to them in any way I can!
I've also chosen the Heads Together campaign. With experiences of mental illness in different variations, I want to help in the fight to end the stigma based around mental health. People who are suffering need support and I want to help them in their battle.
Next week, I’m hosting a Christmas Party through my (and my uncle – Richard Croft’s) boutique ‘The Jewellery Studio’ in Bakewell on 15th December. There will be a great raffle, the main prize is a handmade, Amber and Sterling Silver bracelet by Roseanna Croft Jewellery (amongst other gifts).
This is only the beginning of my fundraising mission for my 2 chosen charities. In 2017, I’m running the London Marathon! Roseanna Croft Jewellery, will be hosting fundraising events in the lead up to it and throughout the year!
