Hello Magazine! cover our meeting with HRH Prince Charles10 September 2013
Today we hand delivered a present to Prince George – via his Grandpa!
As part of Celebrating Enterprise Week, we met HRH the Prince of Wales at an event organised by Business in the Community, of which he is President. We and four other social enterprises showcased our work and the unique contribution we’re making to solve some of society’s most challenging issues.
Business in the Community is a business-led charity that campaigns for all businesses to be responsible. It believes that one of the most powerful ways for business to make a positive impact in communities is through supporting enterprise growth. arc is Business in the Community’s flagship programme to connect social entrepreneurs with support from a collaboration of its member companies. We’re a member of the arc programme and are receiving fantastic support.
We told Prince Charles all about our baby clothes and the children we donate 100% of our profit to support. He’s a fan of organic, so we explained that we only sell high quality organic cotton products, and mentioned that we hope Prince George is enjoying organic baby clothes too!
He was very interested in our business model and congratulated us on the difference we’re making to children’s lives. We gave him this beautiful Elephant print blue baby grow. We hope Princess Kate & Prince William will love our gift, and enjoy knowing that we’re using 100% of our profits to help vulnerable babies all round the world.
