One of the best things about running a business is being able to choose the companies and organisations you want to support. We've been involved with New Ark Adventure Playground in Peterborough for some time now, we've done some work for them and we've even introduced our clients to them. New Ark needed some painting and decorating as part of their maintenance and we happen to have Ben Fallows Painting and Decorating Ltd as one of our favourite clients. They were introduced and the rest, as they say, is history.
This week we received a really lovely thank you letter from New Ark as we sponsored a race at their recent Race Night. They raised enough money to pay for an intercom system on the front door so the children can be more secure while they're there.
These days, we all lead busy lives with work, personal stuff, family, friends etc etc. It's all too easy to forget to take time to say thank you but I think the power of a thank you cannot be underestimated. It takes so little effort to say but has such a huge effect on the recipient.
