Involving your staff in fundraising events is not only good fun it’s an excellent opportunity to encourage team building skills, allow employees to manage a project and develop skills which may not usually fall into their field, both of which increase morale and individual esteem. Running your own event or taking part in a Bridge Trust one such as the Sleepout can also enhance your image with your staff, the local community and your clients. We have plenty of ideas such as sponsoring a manager or team to work in one of our shops for a day, so please contact the office.

We therefore offer you the opportunity to join our Business Stars scheme where, depending on the level of support your business gives, you receive the benefits of either a Gold, Silver or Bronze, Business Star.

She set up her design practice after qualifying in 1997 and hasn’t looked back! She works on both residential and commercial commissions, ranging from small domestic improvements to multi-million pound developments. “What I pride myself on is working closely with my clients to achieve the perfect design for them that far exceeds their expectations. An initial consultation is an essential part of the process. This not only gives the potential client the chance to meet me, but also affords me the opportunity to look at the project and understand the client’s requirements”.
