Sickle Cell Disease is something that is very close to our hearts here at Sugared Velvet

Following the recent and tragic deaths of Richard Okorogheye (19) and Evan Nathan Smith (21), we felt it important to help raise awareness of SCD

Sugared Velvet will be partnering with The Essenelle Foundation,

a Mental Health Charity supporting people with Sickle Cell Disease and their families

Throughout the month of May, all proceeds from any Red Velvet cake sales and orders will be donated to
The Essenelle Foundation

what is

sickle cell?

  • People with Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) have irregular-shaped blood cells that can get stuck in small blood vessels causing episodes of severe pain.

  • These painful episodes are referred to as sickle cell crisis. They are treated with strong painkillers such as morphine to control the pain.

  • SCD is genetic, meaning you can only be born with it and it is not contagious.

  • People of all races can inherit SCD but it is more common amongst those of African, Southeast Asian and Mediterranean heritage.

  • People with SCD are more at risk of infections, stroke, bone damage and blindness.

what is

the essenelle


  • The Essenelle Foundation is the only UK-based charity focused on supporting the mental health needs of SCD sufferers as well as their carers.

  • They aim to provide people who have SCD and their families access to traditional therapies, counselling and emotional wellbeing courses.

  • TEF is determined to work with schools, councils and hospitals to educate on policies that will encourage better practices and support for the SCD community.
