We are delighted to be able to say that we are finalists in The Greats Awards. These are awards for the best Gift Shops in the UK. Last year we were successful in winning a Great for being the best Non-Specialist Retailer of Gifts (aka we're a combined Gift/Coffee Shop). This year our Junior Retailer Scheme and our work on becoming a Makaton Friendly business caught the judges eyes and we are finalists in the best Retail Initiative Category.
I'm delighted with this result as I'm really proud of these two initiatives and so for others to recognise them too is fantastic. The winners are announced at an Awards Ceremony in May. Thank you to all of you that have supported us in these initiatives, it's been fantastic hearing lots of people's stories about how they use Makaton in their life.
