With Black Friday fast approaching lots of big retailers are enticing customers with money off offers and promises of bargains galore. Small retailers like us aren’t able to purchase colossal quantities of  stock for cheap so we can’t compete with the big guys in the discount stakes. That is why we are having our own take on Black Friday, our Charity Black Friday Event! A 10 day event supporting our chosen charity, Cosy Kingdom.

Have you ever wondered where Black Friday came from? The answer is America. The retail giant, Amazon, introduced the idea of Black Friday to the UK in 2010 and it’s grown in popularity each year with more and more big retailers joining in. Huge businesses like Curry’s or Argos use Black Friday as an opportunity to sell excess stock at a discounted rate. This can be beneficial if you have been waiting all year to buy a new TV or iPhone but it’s estimated that Black Friday contributes massively to excess waste, especially e-waste as people buy things they don’t need simply because it’s cheap. A group of lawmakers in France want to ban Black Friday citing environmental impacts due to this excess waste.

Our Black Friday event will not be contributing to any e-waste. With the help of our customers we will instead be contributing to the fight to keep people cosy this winter in Fife.

How do we plan to do this?

We will donate £2 from every sale over the Black Friday period, between 22/11/2021 and 01/12/2021. We have set up a JustGiving page where customers can make additional donations if they wish. We have also committed to donate and deliver 2 dumpy bags/6 barrow bags of our kiln dried hardwood logs per month over the winter period to individuals identified by Cosy Kingdom.

We have partnered up with Cosy Kingdom, a small charity based in St.Andrews that offers essential energy advice to all home owners and tenants across Fife. They also offer other vital services including gas and electricity debt advice as well as their handy service. The handy service is a means tested service in which Cosy Kingdom can supply and fit items such as LED money saving light bulbs, warm curtains and poles, draught proofing, hot water cylinder jackets and more. These small measures can add up to huge savings which are essential given the soaring cost of utility bills in the UK.

According to official figures the average cost of gas and electricity in the UK in 2004 was £565. The average cost in October 2021 was £1277 and this is expected to jump again in April 2022. This figure is even higher for people using prepayment meters which millions of people currently have in place.

Cosy Kingdom are busier than ever and expect increasing numbers of people to contact them this winter for help. This means that Cosy Kingdom need to raise more funds to cover the cost of the amazing work they do. We hope that our Charity Black Friday event will not only raise funds for the charity but also raise awareness for the essential work Cosy Kingdom carry out.

  • Unbelievable quality wood absolutely the best we have ever used and the customer service is again unbelievable they always seem to go the extra mile to look after the customer Laura and Callum you are the best. If your looking for wood then look no further than kingdom firewood.Chris - April 2020
  • Kingdom Firewood were recommended by Kinross Stoves, the people who installed our woodburner. Literally a week after moving in I called Callum and he arrived two days later, it was the middle of December, our house is in the middle of nowhere and with him he brought a large bag of beautiful kiln dried wood, firelighters and kindling. We have never used anyone else's firewood, why would we, it's brilliant. The wood is the perfect size, the kindling is large wood chips and catches really quickly, and now they have coffee logs which whack out so much heat. Callum has since chopped down some trees in our wood and the whole company continues to provide such excellent customer service. So from our first visitor 2 years ago to our regular supplier, I can honestly say, best decision ever to pick up that phone and order my wood from Kingdom Firewood. Thank you Callum and team - you're awesome!Janieann - February 2020
  • I just wanted to say that you provide an excellent service - delivery driver was very friendly and helpful, logs are great and, in particular, I value the stacking service since I often have a sore back.Catherine - April 2020
  • We wanted to try a local business instead of an online supplier and we have not been disappointed! The level of service that we received from the initial phone call to delivery was fantastic. Our wood store is at the back of our house, down a narrow gravelled lane which was not a problem and made stacking the logs a lot easier. Thank you Kingdom Firewood we will be back!Mike - February 2019

  • Callum and his team have been brilliant they have taken down about 20 trees in our heavily wooded garden. Callum was always there giving advice and ideas around what we needed and how it would look . They did an excellent job. Clean up and stump removal was all completed as planned. Despite all kinds of weather they were there , working hard . I had them back again to tidy up some of my hard woods as well and I couldn’t fault anything they have done . Callum was very communicative during this whole process keeping me informed of dates , times And advice if they came across something that didn’t look as good as it should . I would Highly recommended them for anyone . Great team , great knowledge and just an all round great service .Helen - March 2021
