For Charity This Christmas

23 October 2017

We’re proud to announce that we’re helping out a charity this Christmas. Through our YurtBar Christmas parties, we’ll be supporting the Christina Noble Children’s Foundation.

We will donate £1 of every ‘Ski Boot’ drink sold this December, to the Foundation’s ‘Give a Ger’ programme.

Office Manager at Christina Noble Foundation, Fiona Geoghegan commented:

“The “Give a Ger” programme is an emergency fund which was established in 2001 to provide a home for families in danger of becoming homeless, and those families struggling to survive poverty and the harsh Mongolian winters where temperatures regularly plummet to -40 degrees. The gift of a ger does far more than simply removing children from squalid and unhealthy living conditions. The most important factor is that it offers security and stability to families under pressure and the chance of a new start. So a huge thank you to Yorkshire Yurts for supporting this life-changing programme.”

Our founder and managing director, Tom Sterne said:

“Having experienced significant demand for our Christmas Yurt Bar parties this December, we felt that a fitting way to give back, would be to support the country that developed the very product our business is based upon. With the potential for more than 2,000 attendees at a Yurt Bar Christmas party event, we hope the proceeds will go a long way to providing a Mongolian family with a new home.”
