As has become the tradition, we were only too pleased to divert some of the revenue received from our customers to the beaders in Kenya, in the form of a Christmas bonus.
They were delighted to receive gifts of food - not necessarily the most exciting of presents on the face of it, but necessity outvotes frivolity every time for our beaders.
They really have been outstanding, particularly in the run-up to Christmas as this is really the only time of the year when the belts simply have to reach us in time.
I could easily have put back the Christmas deadline for orders, as it happens!
Our huge thanks go to them and very best wishes for 2023.
