It’s been a big year for Glossop Cartons, with lots going on.
We’ve been busier than ever, but that didn’t stop us from reflecting on everything that has happened over the past year. Here are some of our highlights!
2020 was a tough time, for businesses and staff alike. Coupled with the fact that a lot of the UK workforce had been furloughed or were working from home and therefore weren’t in the office to receive a Christmas card, we decided to donate the money that would normally have been spent on sending them to all our customers and suppliers to four local charities instead.
