12 Days of Supporting Small

Date Posted: 18 December 2020

At HRT, we are all for supporting our local businesses and helping out where we can. 2020 has been a difficult year for many us, especially for small businesses and makers. We decided to help out where we could, and used our social media to share and support the lovely products, creations and services offered by businesses from Cowbridge, Bridgend, Cardiff and around South Wales.


Our 12 Days of Supporting Small campaign aimed to bring some festive spirit to your Instagram and Facebook feeds (and maybe give you some late Christmas present ideas!) We have loved getting involved with our local communities and thank everyone who let us feature their business in our campaign posts.


Check out our 12 Days of Supporting Small on our Instagram!
