Why we’re trading #PumpkinsForPounds this Halloween!

Josie’s Dragonfly Trust are just one of our many lovely clients. But more importantly, they are a wonderful charity who make a positive and very real difference to the lives of young cancer patients with limited time, and their families.

The work they do is truly inspiring, as they aim to make patients’ ‘Dragonfly Dreams’ a reality – and help them leave their footprint on the world.

But they can’t do it alone.

This Halloween, we want to do our bit and give something back – giving isn’t just for Christmas, after all! Which is why we’ve created #PumpkinsForPounds. For every picture of a pumpkin carving masterpiece posted on Twitter, we’ll make a donation to the charity.

Cinderella’s fairy godmother turned a pumpkin into a magic carriage – Shine turns them into donations.

So go on – why not post your own pumpkin pic? We’d love to see your creations. All you need to do is tag #PumpkinsForPounds and @Shine_Creative – simple! You have until the stroke of midnight on Halloween.


A dream is a wish your heart makes – and by working together this Halloween, we can help Josie’s Dragonfly Trust make young cancer patient’s dreams come true.

Without the generous support of people like you, the trust wouldn’t have been able to help Mark become a zoo keeper for a day, or Ben get his very own tractor. And they wouldn’t have been able to help Rea’s family create a special garden in memory of her.

There are a number of different ways you can donate, but the easiest is through their JustGiving page. And every donation, no matter how big or how small, will always be greatly appreciated – and make the world of difference!
