What will our volunteers do?
Each year Hoskins Family Stonemasons will fund volunteers on expeditions to aid those in need. A different project will be chosen every year.
We want to clear our beaches from plastic, help build schools and living accommodation for those suffering in poverty, fly out to offer much-needed manpower following the devastation of a natural disaster, join efforts to preserve endangered wildlife and be able to help when help is needed!
And the 100 stones initiative will help fund these expeditions.
What greater honour is there than to fragrance the precious memories of our loved ones by making them part of something great, even after they have passed away? Its a wonderful gift to the loved and lost.
With that in mind £50 from every stone purchased through the 100 stones initiative will be set aside and placed into a charity savings account, then every year the money will be used to do something for the greater good, something that would make all of your loved ones proud to be a part of.
This Years Cause
Countless stories of devastation are emerging around Australia as the country burns.
The scale of the crisis is hard to comprehend. The wildfires have so far burned more than 12 million acres, they have killed at least 24 people, and nearly 2000 homes have been destroyed.
In New South Wales alone, the fires have killed nearly 500 million birds, reptiles and mammals.
In An effort to aid with the Australia fires we will be sending all of this year's volunteer funding directly to the RSPCA. click this link to make a donation of your own.
