The Covid-19 pandemic has provided a difficult few months that have undoubtedly impacted not only those within our community, but also those on a wider, global scale. However throughout these uncertain times at Smylies we believe it is crucial to remain positive during this period, and one thing that has kept us upbeat is seeing how our community among others have come together to support those less fortunate in these uncertain times.
As a family run business, we have humble values at Smylies. During these turbulent times we will continue to conduct our community support duties, as those that need our help require support now more than ever. Our ‘Keep Smyling’ slogan - which was created by one of our directors’ daughters - is something you may see frequently in our content during the ongoing pandemic, as it emphasises the positive outlook that is required to support each other throughout this unusual spell.
So remember to Keep Smyling, and together we can make a positive difference.
In May 2020, Smylies completed the virtual Lands End to John O'Groats duathlon to raise vital funds for two special charities. To elaborate, this challenge consisted of cycling, running and walking the distance from Lands End to John O'Groats (1700km), and was taken on by 10 members of the Smylies team.
The two selected charities are Dementia Together and the Northern Lights Children Charity, and we are delighted to announce that we have smashed our donation target of £2000! Incredibly we raised a total of £3500 which then Smylies generously matched to make a grand total of £7000!

To support causes that are close to the heart of many within our local community, Smylies have made some recent donations to help these charities fight their cause.
Firstly, we have made a £1,000 cash donation on behalf of the entire Smylies team to one of our company chosen charities, The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity. In addition to this - with the help of the Wirral Chamber of Commerce - we have been able to donate approximately £8,000 worth of food and drink supplies to Neo Community Wirral.
In partnership with the Wirral Chamber of Commerce, we have been delighted to be able to donate around £8,000 worth of food and drink supplies to Neo Community Wirral. These supplies are to be put into care packages, that are then to be delivered to some of the regions most vulnerable people, via the great team at Neo Community Wirral.READ MORE
