You haven't heard from us in a while and that's because, in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic, we have been keeping very busy.

Our priority has always been the safety and wellbeing of our employees, customers and communities so we closed our store and were keen to find a valuable way to contribute. When we heard that the NHS needed help in terms of PPE for those amazing doctors and nurses on the frontline, we got together with our network of dressmakers (including those who make couture clothing for the Royal family) and used our contacts to source thousands of metres of fabric.

Our talented dressmakers went to work spending the last eight weeks using their skills and working around the clock making scrubs, PPE masks and bags which we donated to help our NHS heroes.

Another vulnerable group are the homeless so when we were asked to donate hats, we were thrilled to help out - these have now been distributed
