Can you believe it’s almost time to say goodbye to 2020? What a funny old year it has been for everyone! We hope you and your family have remained safe and well, and your fur-babies have been looking after you.
It’s been quite the year at Parkman George HQ too; lots of ups and a few downs but as we move towards the beginning of 2021, we’re feeling positive and actually rather excited.
So, what happened in 2020 for Parkman George?
Well, we raised over £1,200 for Crohn’s and Colitis UK surpassing all our expectations. It was such a fantastic fundraiser, having the PG Pack together on the beach to not only raise money but also to share a rare socially distanced get together with a lovely sunset over beers and bangers courtesy of the BBQ King, Mr Parkman himself. Jessica even made her debut on the radio. We really value our relationship with Crohn’s and Colitis UK and will continue to support them with all the good work they do into 2021.
We also had the opportunity to be part of the Great British Exchange Pop-Up shop at John Lewis & Partners in Cheltenham. The last thing we expected to happen in 2020 after all our other shows were cancelled! We had such an amazing week. All the staff at John Lewis and Partners were so friendly and helpful. We met so many lovely clients and so many beautiful fur-babies. We also had the opportunity to learn more about you, our fabulous customers, everything from your favourite colour combinations to design preferences.
We’ve really enjoyed getting to know our PG Pack even better this year. From Reuben and Shiloh’s success at Crufts to Louie’s journey to the UK from Cambodia. We are so grateful for our PG Pack. We love sharing all their adventures and achievements on our social channels. They make us laugh daily (even though we shouldn’t laugh because they are being naughty!) with their adorable and unique personalities.
It’s that time of year to say thank you to everyone who is part of the Parkman George ship, helping us to navigate our way through this rather unprecedented year and been part of our journey so far. So, thank you Mr Parkman and Jessica’s family; thank you for the cake deliveries, bed deliveries and the willing extra pairs of hands you always give us. Our continued collaboration with Ivy & Duke; you guys are the best and deliver the best soft bedding, thank you. Thank you to Faith, our fabulous photographer who pulls it out the bag every time and always knows what we want even without a brief!
To everyone who is a part of the Parkman George family you are all amazing legends and we really couldn’t do it without you. We love you all at Parkman George HQ. Here’s to an amazing 2021.
There is so much we want to share with you about 2021 but we can’t just yet (a cliché of course) but you can’t count your chickens until they have hatched. Once we can share, you will be the first to know.
Sending you all love, health, happiness and furry cuddles.
