Funky Pigeon is supporting Royal Voluntary Service During these challenging times, Funky Pigeon is pleased to be able to support their customers by keeping friends, families and loved ones connected with the opportunity to correspond with personalised greeting cards and gifts.

From today, Funky Pigeon is delighted to announce a new offering of 12 charity card lines to support Royal Voluntary Service, with 30% of sales being donated to Royal Voluntary Service’s national emergency appeal fund. The 12 cards in the range have a selection of thank you and sentiment messages appropriate for the current circumstances; from sharing thanks to key workers, to thoughtful and unique messages to let someone know you're thinking of them.

Funky Pigeon’s donations to Royal Voluntary Service will go towards their national emergency coronavirus appeal to raise £5million to enable their teams of volunteers to continue to provide a lifeline to tens of thousands of older and vulnerable people, now and in the months to come. Royal Voluntary Service are supporting people to stay well at home and enabling them to access healthcare to ultimately reduce pressure on the NHS front line.

"Firstly, on behalf to the whole Funky Pigeon team, I would like to express our deepest gratitude to all key workers for the incredible effort that they are putting into keeping our country safe and connected. This includes a huge thank you to all charity volunteers from Royal Voluntary Service and all charities which are working tirelessly to ensure everyone gets the care and help they need. The whole Funky Pigeon team are delighted to partner with Royal Voluntary Service, a charity with whom we share so many values; we hope that this contribution can help many people stay safe and support the brilliant work that Royal Voluntary Service do on a daily basis."
