As part of its response to COVID-19, Tivoli decided to invest in hi-vis vests with a ‘2 metres please’ social distancing message, and protective facemasks for all operatives as added protection to keep them safe while at work.
Lytham Embroidery – a small business based in the North that had seen a drop off in business during lockdown, stepped in and worked night, day and weekends to produce the branded PPE that was needed as quickly as possible.
Because of the size of the order and the urgency to get the items out to Tivoli operatives, Lytham Embroidery needed more staff, so they offered Adam the opportunity to help out. Adam is 21 with a hearing impairment and had struggled to secure employment. Since then, Adam has proved himself to be a conscientious worker who really cares about the quality of the garments that Lytham Embroidery produce. He now has a permanent contract, is a proficient user of the embroidery machines, and is participating in training to complete machinery maintenance too. Congratulations to Adam!
Lytham Embroidery has also seen a real upturn in business, as many organisations who valued the quick response in providing PPE items have now gone on to order all of their uniforms from the Lytham Embroidery Team.
Darren Cunningham, Tivoli Chief Executive, said:
“We feel very proud that we have helped a small business to grow, and contributed to a young person getting their first step on their career ladder.”
