We would like to wish all of our customers, suppliers and employees a very Happy Christmas, and a well deserved rest after a challenging year.

In a break with tradition and reflecting the difficult times many are experiencing, we have decided to support two charities rather than send our corporate gifts.

We have made a donation to the Irlam & Cadishead Foodbank to support their efforts in helping those who need some extra support this Christmas.

We have also made a donation to Macmillian Cancer Support, a charity used by and supported by our late friend Chris French – RIP Chris.
