You will likely have heard us mention Swallow Charity before, as one of our wonderful, hardworking members of staff, Chris, came to us through Swallow, and we are pleased to be a small part of what they do.
Swallow Charity is a local charity, started by people with learning difficulties and their families, to develop a new way of meeting their needs.
Some of the members of Swallow came to us before Christmas to do some fundraising, by way of a craft stall. The members worked very hard and were so wonderful to our customers.
Early this week, we were joined once again by the group, this time for a tour of the shop, warehouse and offices, and a tasty lunch from the café.
Our Chief of Operations, Fenna, had a great time showing the group all of the behind-the-scenes secrets, and we received a lovely thank you from the staff:
"Thank you very much for the very interesting tour of BBI yesterday. All the members were really inspired. Everyone bought at least one book and really enjoyed browsing the shelves after lunch."
