At Photo Boards we believe that all profitable businesses no matter how big or small can donate a tiny percentage of sales to charities and good causes.
"We are committed to donating 1% of all our sales to charities we support and are delighted to have supported the following charities in our first year." - Lyndsey James

The Trussell Trust runs a network of over 400 foodbanks, giving emergency food and support to people in crisis across the UK, where thirteen million people live below the poverty line. In the last year they gave 1,182,954 three day emergency food supplies to people in crisis.
It's crazy that food banks should exist at all but thankfully amazing charities like the Trussell Trust exist to help people who are so desperate. Also check out your local supermakets who often collect for foodbanks. -LJ
Lee Bonsall joined the British army aged 18 and served in Afghanistan with the 13 Air Assault regiment where a close friend lost his life in battle. The war and tragic loss of a dear friend left Lee with hidden scars. Suffering from undetected PTSD, Lee took his own life in 2012 aged just 24.
Lee's family set up the Lee Bonsall Memorial Fund to help fellow war veterans and have raised over £100k for charities including SSAFA and Combat Stress.
It's inspiring to see how Lee's family have turned their grief into so much love and help for so many war veterans, raising a phenomenal amount of money for charities who can help people in desperate dark times. -LJ
For 80 years, Plan International UK has been promoting the rights of children, specifically girls, through its work in education, health, child protection, economic security and sanitation.

There are over 125,000 homeless children living in Britain today. Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through advice, support and legal services. And they campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to them for help.
Shelter was our chosen charity for our first Christmas donation and we will be supporting this charity again this Christmas at a time when home, comfort and peace mean so much to us. -LJ
The core purpose and vision of Trees for Life is to restore the Caledonian Forest and all its constituent species of flora and fauna to the Scottish Highlands.

Photo Boards has its own grove of trees at the Trees for Life project and we are delighted that this currently stands at 30 donated trees! -LJ
