Family Day Celebrations!

28th October 2015

In celebration of Family Day on 28th September, we wanted to get our shoppers involved so invited our Facebook followers to send us a photo of their family.

We gave entrants a chance to win £50 and the response was fantastic!

What is Family Day?

As the name suggests, Family Day is an event that is intended to allow loved ones to take a respite from their daily lives and spend quality time together. Some may choose to have a meal together while others attend religious events or simply go for a picnic. Either way, this day is one of the best ways to remind us of the importance of family in our lives.

Unsurprisingly, this day is held at different times of the year within different parts of the world, although the overall intention is the same. As all of us are leading increasingly hectic schedules, so this day is intended to give us a bit of leisure time outside of our routines.
