Big Sisters


Mentoring Girls 13 – 17

Making a difference in our communities.

Big Sisters is a not-for-profit charity committed to mentoring and offering financial scholarships to motivated girls between the ages of 13 and 17.

Our mentoring program is for a twelve-month period and our financial scholarships supports items that add to our girls educational development.

Our Story

Big Sisters was born out of the time spent with loved ones during Covid-19. During this period we took stock of our lives, re-assessed what was important, and decided it was time to reset the balance and our priorities. Our homes, families and communities became our safety zone where we rediscovered less is more, and that we can, and need to, make a difference.

We wanted to create a business that sat with our core values of less is more, recycle, re-use, recreate and give back – this is wistle + co.

Any unsold consignment goods from our stores are donated to the ‘Big Sisters’ charity, with all profits going directly to supporting our mentoring programme.

We are both big sisters, we remember what those developing years were like and we chose to make a commitment to support girls through their own challenges.

Our ambition is to have like minded female mentors on-board to assist in the growth and development of these girls. If you are interested in donating items or time, or would like to be considered as a mentor, please contact us using the form below.

Thank you for helping us make a difference.
