Why Marmalade?

We believe that loneliness is something that most people are likely to experience, especially in a modern and fast-paced world that can feel increasingly disconnected. We are dedicated to raising awareness of loneliness and helping people to forge friendships and build confidence. We believe in the potential of every person and the power of having positive daily connections.

Shout out to the wonderful team at Orchard Coffee, who will be welcoming our members for the 1st time this Christmas🎄. Co-owner Beth said: “Community is what we're all about. We're very excited about being part of #MarmaladeChristmas. It completely fits with our values.” 🎉

We're in awe of the amazing work @marmaladetrust are doing around #loneliness. They tackle the subject with dignity and #empathy. As a small business, it's great to see empathy coming up more and more in discussions around #business.
