Welcome to The Charity Shop Gift Card’s blog, dedicated to promoting sustainable living and encouraging positive change within our communities. Each month, we’ll be providing you with a comprehensive guide to events across the country that hopefully align with your interests and values. With the summer holidays now in full swing, we understand the importance of keeping kids entertained, so we’ve tried to include some events specifically designed for children. Every month, we’ll share a condensed version of the sustainability-focused event directory on our Instagram, but for the complete list, our blog is the place to be! We’ll continuously update the blogpost throughout the month as we discover more events, so don’t forget to bookmark the page and check back regularly! Additionally, if you’re organizing an event that you believe should be featured in our upcoming posts, please don’t hesitate to drop us a DM on our Instagram. Your contributions are greatly appreciated!

(Note: Please note that due to the dynamic nature of events, we recommend verifying the dates, times, and locations of each event before attending.)
