Unveiling our partnership with Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Char – Prestat Chocolates

With wholehearted joy, we want to announce our partnership with Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity

They provide specialist nurses and support for seriously ill children. Their network of nurses is 86 strong and they support over 32,000 children and young people, and their families. To aid them in this vital work, we’ll be collaborating on a series of projects together to help children lead more marvellous lives. 

This partnership means so much to all of us here at Prestat. Joy giving is integral to our brand, team and the craft of our chocolate. Whether that’s a box of chocolates that brings a family together, or supporting the training and development of a Roald Dahl Nurse who has the magical ability of bringing joy to every child. The support Roald Dahl Nurses provide is emotional as well as clinical, and being able to support their wealth of talent and care is a source of pride and joy for us all. 

This partnership has real heart too and we’ll be starting our new venture together with a series of thoughtful gifts. We will be sending festive chocolate gifts to all Roald Dahl Nurses across the UK, as well as a number of seriously ill children and families that the charity supports. This will include those attending a special event at Clarence House in December with the charity’s Royal Patron, Her Royal Highness The Former Duchess of Cornwall. 

What’s More! We’ll be donating a percentage of our Black Friday Sales to Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity too. Between Friday 25 November and Tuesday 29 November, we will be raising the prices of our delicious chocolates by £1. Every extra £1 we receive will be donated to support seriously ill children and their families. To top it all, we’ll be offering generous spirits the option to make a donation of their own at our online checkout. 

Our CEOs share an ethos and desire to use our new partnership to spread joy and delicious chocolate, and here is what they have to say:

Louise Griew, CEO at Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity, said:

“We are extremely excited to partner with such a prestigious brand. We look forward to working together with Prestat and their wonderful customers over the coming months and years to help improve the lives of some of the most vulnerable children in the UK. The dedication and expertise of Roald Dahl Nurses reduces waiting times, A&E visits and hospital admissions. They are also a vital lifeline to the whole family, coordinating care and providing the highest level of emotional support. This partnership will help increase the reach and impact of our work, resulting in improved support to more seriously ill children and their families.”

Micaela Illy, CEO at Prestat Chocolates, added:

“This partnership is close to our hearts. Not only is Roald Dahl a fixture in Prestat history, we hold the practice of joy giving dear at Prestat, from our lovingly crafted chocolates to the happiness of our team in our joy-filled chocolate factory. We are so proud to be able to support the incredible Roald Dahl Nurses and have been so impressed with all the specialist care and support they give. Supporting this marvellous cause will help enable more children, with complex, lifelong conditions, and their families to receive the specialist care they deserve”.

We know this is the start of a beautiful relationship and we look forward to spreading joy together. Watch this space! We’ll be sharing more projects here.
