We will continue to be fair to our customers and our brands
Disclaimer! If you know us well, it will come as no surprise that A Hume Country Clothing will not be taking part in Black Friday. As previous years, we promise to be fair to our customers, you will not find our items at full price one day and then slashed in price the next, you can continue to buy from us with confidence. We promise to uphold the integrity of our quality brands and not devalue their journey or the craftsmanship that has gone into each and every product and the people who have worked so hard to deliver them to us and to you.
Give Back Friday
This has been a difficult year, the loss, uncertainty, and changes to our normal has been “a journey”. A journey along the twistiest of country roads, covered in pot holes, where on the way you get a punctured tyre and to top it all off you have no signal (quite normal in the countryside) to call anyone for help. There have been moments of helplessness and despair, contentment, and frustration. But no matter your experience, you have got to here and that counts for something.
This year we wanted to do something different, we will not take part in Black Friday but will have our very own Give Back Friday. So, this year for every order placed on Friday the 27th of November 2020 we will donate 10% of that order to our chosen charity, The Country Trust.
The Country Trust – bringing alive the working countryside for children least able to access it
Since 1978 The Country Trust has been making it possible for hundreds of volunteer farmers and landowners to welcome thousands of disadvantaged young children from all backgrounds and faiths on their farms to share their passion for food, farming and the countryside.
It is always hard to choose a charity to support, there are so many that do such valuable work, and in such difficult times charities need support more than ever. The work that The Country Trust carries out resonated with us here at A·Hume. We understand the value of the countryside and feel it is important that the benefits of the country state of mind are available to be experienced by people from all backgrounds and faiths, in particular those who are least likely to have access to it.
Not only are these experiences valuable to the children fortunate enough to have these opportunities, the practical knowledge they gain, the encouragement for them to feel more responsible for their own and the wider environment can have big impacts on the future of our farming communities and countryside.
Thank you for your support
I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of our customers, our family, for choosing our small, independent business, particularly over the last 8 months. We have enjoyed catching up with you on the phone, seeing your sunflowers grow and hearing all of your lockdown stories, it really brought a sense of, we are in this together. Your kindness, patience and support mean so much to us, and now it is our turn to do our bit and support a worthwhile cause this Give Back Friday.
Rachel Thomson (Managing Director) and the rest of your A·Hume family.
