The Thames Ditton Boomerang Bag sewing bees @PlasticFreeTD are thrilled to report they are now supplying Budgens in @TDHighStreet with a regular supply of reusable Boomerang Bags to hand out free to customers who need a shopping bag, instead of single-use plastic bags. Manager Kuki is extremely community minded and was recently awarded a Spirit of the Community Award organised by @ThamesDittonGin in association with @AboutTD.
Retail is hard work and Budgens has been busier than ever throughout the Covid-19 pandemic whilst people have been staying home and shopping locally to keep safe and stocked up with food and essentials! Kuki and his team have more than met the challenges of 2020/21 and the shop and post office has become a true community hub. The Spirit of the Community Award recognises Kuki “never takes a day off, is always cheerful and good to talk to, who often goes the extra mile”.
