December 2021 Newsletter


Where do I begin? The past year has been testing to say the least but we’ve had an incredible year, all things considered – and we’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you to you and our charity partners Southwark Council, Lambeth Council, Paddington Development Trust, British Land, Cute Dog, Petit Miracles, Mountview Theatre, Big Local Works, Southbank University, for your never-ending words of kindness and encouragement.

Next year we have an exciting line-up of programmes and opportunities including the delivery of our Youth Enterprise programme working with 18-30 year olds in Lambeth funded by the Walcott Foundation. We will also be broadening our offer to include legal advice, workshops and access to start up loans to support the independent small business owners we work with.

Finally, I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you to our amazing Business Mentors who have continuously supported our clients on their journey, and to wish you and your family a very happy, restful and healthy holiday.
