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!
