As a local business we want to support local charities, so we were very proud to support Wicked Weather Watch by hosting a book signing event with their founder, Sir David Hempleman-Adams. Our business model supports local produce, and with transportation and agriculture being some of the biggest contributors to greenhouse gases, working with a climate change education charity makes sense. With primary aged children of our own, it feels like a really good partnership. The evening was a lovely opportunity to bring different parts of the community together – local individuals and businesses with our customers and WWW explorers and staff – and we look forward to support WWW again in the future.
