Last month we told you about the amazing response we’d had to our 2019 product range – including some wonderful press features and pre-orders totalling £10,000! And we’re delighted to announce that the good news has kept on rolling with a whirlwind month of October…
We are so so happy to announce that we have reached yet another milestone in our fundraising mission:
£75,000 RAISED FOR CHARITY!
That’s close to our total last year - We’ve still got a way to go but we were thrilled to pass this important milestone!

WORDS OF SUPPORT FROM HOLLY AND RICHARD BRANSON
We were delighted to read the recent blog by Holly Branson on the Virgin website about all-things-Advent-of-Change! Holly, Sir Richard and Virgin have championed Team AoC from the very beginning and we’re still very humbled to receive such wonderful words.
Holly said: “Every time I meet with Kristina, I’m filled with hope and inspiration. I can’t wait to see how Advent of Change continues to evolve, during the festive season and beyond!”
