Giving Back

Our Charity Partnership

 

At The Faraway Gang we want to make a positive impact with the brand as well as making gorgeous knitwear. We are proud to support Clear Sky; a children’s mental health charity that focuses on using the Power of Play to transform children’s lives.

About Clear Sky Children's Charity

 Clear Sky was created in 2010 by Sophia Giblin following her own difficult personal experiences in childhood after a family bereavement. Hear from Sophia in her own words about what motivated her to start Clear Sky.

 

Clear Sky helps children struggling with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties through Play & Creative Arts Therapy. This age appropriate approach uses the language of PLAY to support children who have faced a variety of challenges including abuse, trauma, neglect, bullying, bereavement and domestic violence. Qualified therapists assist the child in ‘playing out’ difficult feelings and building their resilience so that they may enjoy happy and healthy futures.

Why The Faraway Gang Supports Clear Sky

The inspiration behind our brand comes from children’s stories, playtime and imagination and their ‘Power of Play’ ethos really resonates with us. As a pair of organisations, we feel we have complementary beliefs about what a happy and healthy childhood looks like. We are proud to support them so every time you buy a jumper from us, we donate £1 to Clear Sky Children’s Charity. By contributing to Clear Sky together we can ensure that many more children receive the therapeutic support they need and deserve to secure happiness and fulfil their immense potential.

If you have been as touched as we are by the impact they have on children’s lives, you can find out more at www.clear-sky.org.uk or make a donation by visiting their Just Giving page.

 On behalf of Clear Sky and The Faraway Gang, thank you for supporting an incredible cause!
