The Quick Social Business Christmas Gift Guide

November 30, 2020

This Christmas, it’s more important than ever to support social businesses. At a time when it may feel easier to shop online at the major online retailer ‘who shall not be named’, why not take a bit of time to find a social business which benefits a local community?

Today, we are highlighting three social businesses we have been working with over the last year who are selling presents online!


🕯️FOR CONSCIOUS HOMEWARE, FASHION AND GIFTS, AKOJO MARKET 🕯️


Akojo Market is the leading UK platform selling handmade accessories, jewellery, homeware and fashion from independent African designers. They carefully select talented designers and brands who promote local culture and artisan craftsmanship, and are committed to a sustainable and transparent way of working. We worked with Akoji Market this year as part of the F-LANE accelerator from Vodafone.
