This year the Action Medical Research Fair is taking place online! From 19th October to 1st November, they are running a virtual gift fair through the Brilliant Little Brands website and as a founder member of this great initiative, Seres Gifts is proud to be part of the action!
So How does it work?
The idea is simple. 10% of every sale made through the Brilliant Little Brands website is donated to charity. You can choose from the many charities that have already signed up for the campaign. For the next two weeks, the focus is firmly on the wonderful Action Medical Research team in Spalding.
A bit about Action Medical Research
Since 1952, Action Medical Research has been at the forefront of vital research into diseases that devastate the lives of babies, children and young people. From the first polio vaccine in the UK to its most recent “Born Too Soon” campaign which focuses on premature birth, Action Medical Research funds medical research to help save and change the lives of babies and children.

A bit about Brilliant Little Brands
For years, independent stallholders have supported charities by attending gift fairs, donating a percentage of takings to the cause, as well as paying for a stand at the event. This helped raised vital and valuable money for so many great causes, both local and national. However, Covid-19 has stopped all that. Since April, all events have been cancelled, resulting in loss of funding for charities and loss of earnings for hundreds of independent small businesses.
Brilliant Little Brands is an ingenious solution – an online shopping platform from quality independent stallholders which donates a percentage of all takings to charity. Think of Not On the High Street, but with a special “feel good” factor!
Enjoy Shopping, Love Giving!
So, what are you waiting for? Pop along to Brilliant Little Brands and enjoy the knowledge that not only are you supporting truly independent businesses, but that your purchase is helping a great cause too!
