I was contacted by Awemix Watches about their Time to Care scheme. They wanted to send me a watch to help promote their scheme where 20% of the sale price goes to good causes – which are currently Breast Cancer and Wildlife and Conservation. The chosen charities change every now and again but are currently Keeping Abreast and the Norfolk Wildlife Trust.
I was a bit suspicious because I couldn’t find anything on the NWT website about this, and I still can’t, but when I contacted NWT they confirmed that they were expecting to be beneficiaries of this idea. Keeping Abreast is rather more gushing about the scheme.
The watch is OK – although the strap is too short to fit on my wrist – but I don’t think I’d pay £20 for it. Or even £16 and give £4 to charity. I might just give £4 to charity and not bother with the watch.
Sorry – I can’t be very enthusiastic.
