Originally qualified as a nurse, Cherry now has an MSc in Public Health which supports our Charity work well. Since 2012, Cherry has been a Mary Kay beauty consultant and is a qualified professional make-up artist. Cherry personally tests all our products when in development. Long before we make them available for sale she ensures that they are of a quality high enough for herself.

Not only our CEO but Cherry is the ‘Face of DONERRY Elegance‘ and is responsible not only for looking good and testing out our new products but she is also responsible for sales and all beauty consultations.

Don (the MD)

Don is originally from Scotland and is a very proud kilt wearing Scot. He has traveled mainly in Europe and speaks a few useful languages. Since meeting Cherry he has learnt to talk Krio and is improving all the time.  Don has been known to wear African fashion as part of his embracing of Cherry’s African culture and he will try and eat anything African. A true businessman, Don is an MBA graduate and has many years of Retail and eCommerce management experience with some top flight companies such as IKEA, Metro Group, B&Q, Dunelm Mill and Wolesley to name a few.

Don does all the technical, financial, organizational and purchasing behind the scenes. Quite frankly all the boring stuff but someone has to do it.

Our Products:

At DONERRY Elegance, we source and buy all our products ourselves and as such cut out middle men. In addition we don’t have expensive shops or a large infrastructure. Basically, we don’t do things that add to the cost of our products, we only do what is necessary. Our guarantee to you is that we thoroughly test all products personally before we put them on our website. That way we ensure that they are of the best quality possible.

Our Pricing Policy:

We set our prices to make our products good value for money. They are quality products but our aim to to keep them affordable. We set a single price and don’t increase it when we sell into other countries. Shipping is reflective of the actual cost of the transportation. Only if you pay in a local currency and exchange rates fluctuate will there be any change in price.

There is no such thing as a free delivery. So when you get a free delivery the cost of the shipping is actually included in the price of the goods . We don’t do that. Our prices have nothing added. However we do charge a fee for packaging and delivery/shipping that represents the actual cost involved.

So basically to make our prices at the best value, we keep our business lean and pass on the benefits to you.

Shipping/Delivery

We can ship anywhere in the world with only a few exceptions. We are based in the UK but have access to many carriers who can take our products to you. In some countries we have a local representative who will hold stock locally. they will have somewhere you can collect the goods.

Our delivery charges reflect the average costs of a parcel to the destination country. We try to keep these as low as possible and constantly review them.
