Over £2,000 has been donated to The Menopause Charity following a collaboration between Travelwrap founder and charity ambassador Liz Earle.
Travelwrap founder Niamh Barker teamed up with one of the UKs leading wellness gurus, to create the Liz Earle Wellbeing Wrap. The limited-edition pink cashmere wrap was sold through the Travelwrap company and to date has donated £2,200. 10% of the sale of each wrap was donated to The Menopause Charity.
Jenny Haskey, CEO at The Menopause Charity said, “We are thrilled to have received such a wonderful donation following this collaboration. Liz and Niamh are passionate about raising awareness and work tirelessly to break down barriers experienced by others. The donation from Travelwrap will help us ensure more women can access the trusted information and support they deserve.”
A conversation with Liz and Niamh
Liz and Niamh want to do everything they can to bring more support to an important stage in a woman’s life.
Niamh Barker: The Liz Earle Wellbeing wrap is a way of embracing yourself when you need a little care and attention. This cashmere shawl, made at our mill on the Scottish borders by skilled artisans, could not be more perfect. Liz and I have talked about our personal experience navigating the menopause and I wanted to see what we could do to support women.
Liz Earle: I am a big fan of Niamh, and I am thrilled we have the opportunity to work together again on this exciting project. It was important to me to work with an ethical brand. If we are to support women in a sustainable way, then we have to work in a partnership with true purpose at its heart. Travelwraps are knitted from ethically sourced yarn and last for ages. I chose this pink because I love the way it reflects warmth back onto the skin, instantly brightening how we look – as well as how we feel.
Niamh Barker: The menopause can be a challenging time, so it’s important to do what we can to look after both our physical and emotional wellbeing. Cashmere wraps and shawls are perfect for providing a little comfort for when we are not on top form. And the more comfort we can bring into our lives the better.
Liz Earle: When Niamh and I first met we were starting our journey of discovery surrounding help for our menopausal symptoms – and we instantly bonded over this. It is great to see so many more people talking about the menopause but increasing numbers of women still need support. This is why The Menopause Charity is so essential, making sure that up-to-date and 100 per cent accurate information gets passed onto as many women as possible.
Niamh Barker: It was at a dinner in Scotland that Liz and I started talking about our personal experience of menopause, and some of the barriers women just like ourselves were encountering. I was so interested to hear more from Liz about her work with experts and individuals in the area. We got together not long after for one of Liz’s podcasts and chatted further and openly about what we could do to support women. And here we are now. I hope everyone loves this new wrap as much as Liz and I do.
