Love Cocoa has launched a new Luxury Chocolate Truffle Charity Advent Calendar as part of its 2021 Christmas Collection. This year’s incarnation is a completely truffle-tastic, grown-up chocolate affair benefitting two very important causes. All profits from the sale of the calendars will go directly to NHS Charities Together. This charity funds key projects that improve services for patients, as well as providing important practical and emotional support for NHS staff and volunteers. Love Cocoa hopes to raise in the region of £50,000 for the charity.
Not only that, the sale of every calendar will plant three trees in East Kenya as part of the brand’s continuing ‘Plant A Tree’ project, which aims to plant over ½ million trees this year in a bid to fight deforestation and climate change.
Remaining true to the brand’s British roots, the illustrated, gold-embossed A3 calendar (both plastic free and 100% recyclable) depicts a festive winter scene in London, shining a spotlight on the country’s NHS heroes. There’s a selection of four truffle varieties, handmade from sustainably-sourced, palm oil free and slave free single origin Colombian cocoa: Hazelnut Praline, Dark Chocolate Ganache, Gianduja Square and a Giant Rocher plus two surprise Love Cocoa mini bars to enjoy behind the 24th door.
Love Cocoa continues to go from strength-to-strength with permanent listings in Ocado and a sales value of £7.5million. Founder, James Cadbury commented: “Giving back was always part of the original Cadbury family’s values and I’m pleased to be able to carry on the tradition with Love Cocoa this Christmas, helping generate much-needed funds to support NHS workers.” The Love Cocoa 2021 Luxury Calendar is available from lovecocoa.com and Ocado. RSP £25.
