Welcome to our Charity Page
Each year we support a wide variety of local, national and international charities via donation, sponsorship or providing stock for charitable events.
Below are details of fundraising events held and the fantastic charities Puckator support.
Puckator’ Charity of the Year in 2017 is the Cornwall Air Ambulance
This year they are celebrating their 30th year, having flown over 26,000 missions, which is on average 700 missions every year, saving lives and bringing vital emergency medical treatment in minutes to patients across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, all funded by the generosity of the public and local businesses.
To help celebrate 30 years of saving lives in 2017, Cornwall Air Ambulance is offering you the chance to win a brand new Peugeot 108 in the 30th Anniversary Grand Draw.

This extraordinary evening is sponsored by Puckator Ltd.
One of the ways the Air Ambulance raise money is by selling donated items in their six shops, all in Cornwall. In order to help raise as much money as possible for them in addition to the sponsorship, we are organising a collection of donated items for the Air Ambulance to sell in their shops. Our colleagues from Cornwall office and warehouse all participate in donation of men, women and kids’ good quality clothing, bric-a-brac, furniture, shoes, jewellery, handbags, toys, books and DVDs. Also, we have a collecting tin in the Reception for all the donations from our customers.
St Luke’s cares for people of all ages 18 and upwards throughout Sheffield who have terminal illnesses. Their mission is to deliver the best possible palliative and end of life care in Sheffield free of charge, whilst developing and driving continual improvements for everyone affected by terminal illness. As a charity, everything they do is offered completely free of charge and they rely on public support to fund 74% of the overall costs of the vital care.
Every year St Luke’s help more than 1,500 patients and their families and carers - more than 5,000 people in total. At any one time, they are caring for 20 patients in their In Patient Centre. Meanwhile, throughout Sheffield, 17 of St Luke’s community nurses are caring for around 400 patients in their own homes and in care homes – around 1,000 every year. They work constantly with the NHS, local care homes and council departments to further develop exactly the range of care and support services that all people with terminal conditions need and deserve.
We have been cooperating with St Luke over the past years and are happy to participate in 3 different projects in 2017:
Jack’s wing walk on a bi-plane (September)
Our colleague, designer Jack Evans decided to accept the challenge and experience the thrill of a wing walking ride in aid of St Luke:
In September I will be taking part in a Wing Walk in aid of St Luke's Charity. Puckator are proud to be a part of such an amazing cause that provides the best possible palliative care in Sheffield.
Our aim is to raise £800 so please donate as little or as much as you can to support this charity through my Just Giving page https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/jackevanspuckator
Autumn Sponsored walk (October)
Puckator is providing glow sticks and other glow items for this year’s Autumn walk. More details on this event coming soon!
St Luke’s Festival of Light – this very special event is a celebration and remembrance of the lives of loved ones, allowing people to dedicate a light in memory of people they have lost. Held in the grounds of St Luke’s in Sheffield for the past 25 years, they welcome over 1,000 people each year and raise a staggering £50,000 in total for the charity.
This year, as well as all the Sheffield office working at the event, we are also developing special products for St Luke’s to sell at this event and sponsored them by £4,000 towards the annual lights up. Check back here for more even details soon.
