Our Social Enterprise Journey... Encouragement from Customers

We've been fortunate to receive many kind words of compliments along our social enterprise journey. They indicate to us that the good design and social benefit of our products do make a difference. In this post, we'd like to share two messages ~ one from a UK visitor and the other from a local customer ~ which, together with the many others who have given us encouraging comments, have made our journey in the very tough retail market all worthwhile.

"He never fails to make me smile . . ."


On a recent holiday to Singapore I was fortunate to visit the spectacular Gardens by the Bay where, in the gift shop, my wife bought a little batik teddy bear made by your organisation for me as a memento of a wonderful day.

I have called him 'Harry' after the late Prime Minister of Singapore and enclose a photograph of him sat on my bookcase at home here in the UK. He usually sits on my desk next to me when I am working and never fails to make me smile when I look at him.

The sewing skill and the quality of his manufacture are absolutely top class and the ladies and gentlemen who made him and many others like him are very talented indeed. I would be really grateful if you could pass on my sincere appreciation to them for their craftsmanship and also in providing me with a treasured memento of a really wonderful city.

Kind regards,
