Avoca's Charity Partnership 2021

Avoca are very proud to be partnering up with Walk in My Shoes again this year. The mental health awareness campaign from St Patrick’s Mental Health Services, the campaign works to raise awareness around mental health in Ireland. The campaign was first established in 2012 when a young man in St Patrick's said "he wished his friends could walk in his shoes to understand how he was feeling." 

We are delighted to have four charity products arriving into our stores this Autumn/Winter, with all proceeds from the sales of these items going directly to Walk in my Shoes.  Designed in-house by our creative team, we have created two beautiful candles as well as Christmas card decorations in partnership with the campaign. Coming soon to our stores and online, all proceeds will be donated to Walk in my Shoes. We hope this will have a meaningful effect on people’s lives, particularly at this time of year which can be difficult for so many. 

Avoca were thrilled to collaborate with Dusty Boy Designs on a new collection of prints, one of which is also raising funds for Walk in my Shoes, Beautifully designed with care, each print incorporates a little piece of the Avoca ethos and story, while simultaneously reflecting how we’re all moving through life at the moment, towards light and hope. You will find Dusty Boy's range of prints in Avoca stores and online very soon.

This year more than ever, we want to help those in need, to foster wellbeing within our own community, and to highlight the important issue of mental health. A perfect Christmas gift or a meaningful addition to add to your Christmas table, we hope thoughtfully designed items will help shine a light on a very worthy cause.
