Spread gratitude with a Lavolio chocolate gift, and help a small business survive the CV-19 crisis.

by Lavinia Davolio in London, England, United Kingdom

Show your gratitude with a gift of handmade chocolates

Donate a Lavolio gift to a worker in the NHS - or to a person of your choice - and help us through the crisis.

Would you like to help spread the gratitude with a gift of chocolates? At the same time, you will be helping to back our small business. Every single order is precious at this difficult time. More orders are vital to manage cash flow and to support Lavolio through the crisis. 

What is happening to Lavolio during the time of coronavirus

Lavolio is a small business with a lovely shop in Fulham. Once the lockdown started, and we closed our physical store, our wholesale customers also had to close (no more orders), and shortly thereafter, it was not safe to have my team come into work, having to use public transport and having to go to the post office in order to fulfil the orders from our own website. With reduced operations, we are finding it really hard, as our sales channels have been affected by CV-19. We used to provide confectionery for weddings and events, and all of these are now cancelled.  

Therefore, we’d love you to help us #payitforward, by choosing to send a Lavolio treat to someone who is special to you or by supporting our wonderful NHS workers. 

We believe the most important part of a small business is its people.

Supporting our #PayItForward campaign will help Lavolio:

  • Spread the gratitude, and say thank you to the frontline - or to a person of your choice.
  • Save jobs and support livelihoods. We want to bring back all our staff from furlough as soon as reasonably possible.
  • Help us to reopen the doors of our boutique, when it is safe to do so, and not become yet another statistic of closures on the British high street.
  • Pay our suppliers. All of our products are handmade by artisans: they are small businesses themselves who are also struggling. Being able to pay them in a timely fashion at this crucial point would be invaluable to them and us.

With your help, we will do everything reasonably possible to continue to offer a physical shop you can visit as well as a website you trust and enjoy. 

Our Lavolio chocolates are one-of-a-kind 

We are on a mission to make a box of chocolate more exciting and, if you have not tried us before, we offer more than 30 handmade flavours. Using a traditional Italian panning technique which sugar coats, inside you’ll have different fillings made with nuts, chocolate, real pieces of fruit, spices, coffee… Every bite is a surprise with different textures and fillings. Once you taste them, you immediately know what it is all about.

Lavolio is an award-winning boutique confectionery in Fulham. We are a team of six who are incredibly passionate about what we do. We are coming together to offer some of our skills as a reward, ranging from a fun and relaxed line dancing class to a self-defence virtual course offered by a Tae Kwon Do black belt (have a look at our rewards!). And of course, you can choose to have a virtual Italian cook-along with Lavinia. 

Thank you for everything that you do to support us

Whether you want to offer a small donation to contribute to a gift for our NHS, become a lifetime supporter, or treat your loved ones with a Lavolio gift, we greatly appreciate your backing. No contribution is too small. 

It has been heartwarming to see the messages of support from our customers and these have really made a difference in these unsettling times, both personally and to the team.

Thank you, grazie, 

Lavinia
