A big thank you to all our supporters!
What a year! Lockdowns, infected linen, masks on/masks off and at the same time… staff transitions to sustainable external employment. Like so many others, we faced it all, and did so with determination, a lot of love for each other, and quite often a well-placed gif on WhatsApp! That being said, this year would have been a lot harder to endure without the following major support partners; COVID causing our volume to drop 80% had an immediate and significant impact on the business, and one Vanguard would have struggled to overcome were it not for the amazing support from the Paul Ramsay team, (especially the always supportive Matt Knopp), who mobilised the ‘Sustaining our Partners Taskforce’ alongside SVA (Malcolm Garrow) to help so many Social Enterprises in times of absolute dire situations.
