As the festive shopping season really kicks into gear, equitysport is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Africa-inspired candle maker; Young Mary’s!

Young Mary’s is a luxury African candle brand founded by Lola Jemibewon, and from 15th November through to 15th December 2020, Young Mary's will donate 10% of all their sales to equitysport!

After moving from the United States to Nigeria, Lola founded Young Mary’s as a celebration of travel, storytelling, and the beauty of the African continent. Each candle is named after a different African city or country, and takes the sights, smells and stories of each location as inspiration for its unique and luxurious scent.

Lola said of the festive partnership with equitysport:

“At Young Mary’s we want to share stories and inspire conversations from a really integral, yet often overlooked part of the world - Africa!” 

By purchasing a Young Mary’s candle in December, you will not only be supporting this wonderful small business, you will also be funding equitysport’s locally-driven mentoring and capacity-building programmes in sub-Saharan Africa.

We’re also pleased to announce that this year, Work for Good will match Young Mary’s donations up to £500, so your purchase will have double the impact for equitysport!

Work for Good are running the fund-matching scheme for all small businesses this December, as funds last. So, if you’re a small business interested in supporting equitysport, we would love to hear from you!
