MacMillan Bake Sale Fundraising Success

On Friday 29th September we held our annual MacMillan Bake Sale, which was a great success. Thank you to all of our employees brought in both home baked and shop bought cakes to create a fabulous spread to tempt everyone. We had lots of visitors from the Roy Humphrey workforce and other businesses around the site, including our own team. Thank you to everyone who donated, we are so happy that we raised £300 from our sale. Our Directors have once again agreed to match the amount raised, making the grand total £600.



ISO’s achieved with flying colours

Our annual audit for the ISO-9001 Quality Management & ISO-14001 Environmental Management, took place in July and we are really proud to say we passed with flying colours once again.

This year we have worked hard to embed the principles of ISO into everything we do, whether a new idea or an existing strategy or process. The principles are being rolled out to every level of the business, from Directors to warehouse operatives and administration clerks, and the results are clearly evident.

The ISO-14001 Environmental Standard, alongside the Carbon Charter Accreditation, has had a distinct impact on the warehouse guys, who have been coming up with great ideas for reducing and recycling packaging waste and looking at car sharing.

Looking ahead, we have our first audit for the ISO-45001 Occupational Health & Safety Standard in September, which we are busy preparing for.

The three ISO standards will then underpin all areas of the business and support us to continuously improve our systems. If you are considering introducing ISO standards into your business, we would encourage you to take the plunge


Our Facilitator, Ian Wearing (on the right of the picture), completed the London to Brighton Charity Bike Ride last weekend, raising money for the British Heart Foundation. Finishing in an impressive 4 hrs 20 mins, only taking 2 rest stops and then facing the challenging uphill climb of Ditchling Beacon, Ian is very proud of his achievement. And so are we …… great stuff Ian!! 


Carbon Literacy Accreditation

Congratulations to Sara, our General Manager and Beverley, our Business Support Officer for gaining their Carbon Literate Accreditation earlier this month. Thank you to Amy Coulter at Groundwork East for running an interesting and informative course, which we would recommend to any business to help them become more sustainable and environmentally aware.


ISO 9001 Certification Year 3

In the summer of 2021 we received our ISO 9001 certification following our annual audit, by McKibben Management Consultants Ltd. The ISO 9001 certification is about developing a quality management system that works to consistently deliver the highest level of service to customers. This has been especially helpful during Brexit and the current Covid-19 pandemic, when logistics and warehousing have been under immense pressure.
Since we began working with ISO 9001 standard in 2019, we have developed new and improved ways of working, including with customers, suppliers and our own teams.
We also hold ISO 14001 and aim to be working towards other ISO standards in 2022.


Movember Campaign

Six members of our team have willingly agreed to take part in the Movember ‘grow a moustache’ campaign. We are at day 15 and counting…… 

With the money raised, groundbreaking health projects across mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer, are funded. 

So far they raised £310 and would love to get to £500 before the end of the challenge, so please help them by donating at
