It’s been another fantastic year at Sinclair & Rush. We started the year in a strong position which set us up for a very successful 2018, one which we all look back upon with pride.
Every year, charity is a huge part of our focus and 2018 was where we ramped it up even more. Our team took part in the Thames Path Challenge, walking 30k in one day! The day was a terrific success and the team was able to raise funds for the charity that we work with, Fields of Life, a charity that works to supply clean drinking water to underprivileged villages in Uganda.
Allan Gower, Sales Manager, also did more than his fair share of raising funds for this fantastic charity by travelling to Norway where he participated in the Fjord’s Challenge. For two days, Allan trekked through the Sunnmøre Alps, facing steep climbs and taking in the gorgeous views. From this one event, he raised more than £2,300 which is a huge achievement.
We also held a very successful MacMillan Coffee Morning in September. Not only did we get to sample everyone’s delicious baking, but we also raised a total of £215.00!
We also celebrated a number of staff anniversaries. Janet, long time Accounts Manager at Sinclair & Rush, retired after celebrating 25 years with the team! Over her career, Janet saw many changes to the industry and was a vital part of the team. Allan also celebrated an anniversary with the company and has been a part of the team for 10 years.
2018 also saw a significant change in our management structure with James Gardner stepping into the Managing Directors position in place of Paul Gardner who retired after more than 20 years.
One of the most exciting events of the year was the launch of our new website! Back in the summer, we were so happy to unveil our new, fully responsive website with more functionality and better usability. We introduced new product pages, a revised ordering process and login area. The patience of our customers was truly appreciated during this process and we will continue working towards having our complete product range available for purchase on the site in the coming months into 2019.
2018 has been a great year for Sinclair & Rush and we look forward to continuing to work with you in 2019!
