Orla Kiely Charity Bag for Tesco

I was reading one of my favourite blogs and came across this shopping bag that has been designed by Orla Kiely to raise money for Clic Sargent. It is being sold exclusively at Tesco this December and retails at £4, with fifty pence from every sale being equally divided between Clic Sargent and Orla's personal charity, The Royal College of Art, which funds bursaries for textile students.
Around 10 families a day are told that their child has cancer and treatment can last for up to three years.  Julie Worrall, Tesco Campaign Manager at CLIC Sargent, said: “As Tesco Charity of the Year we aim to raise £5 million to help children with cancer spend more time at home and less time in hospital.  The money we receive when customers buy Orla’s bags will help to fund CLIC Sargent nurses who coordinate children’s care at home so they can live as normal a life as possible.” (Quote from Clic Sargent)

So if you would like to support two very worthy charities and also get yourself a very stylish shopping bag, head down to Tesco's now because I doubt they will be around for long!
