York Supplies Converts to Community Ownership

I’m writing, as promised, to let you know that we have just completed the transfer of York Supplies to the Society. This means that from today we now own and operate the business.

This could not have been achieved without your generous financial support and also the work of the many volunteers who have worked tirelessly to make it happen. Everyone involved in the many aspects of the transfer process is now exhaling and just taking a moment!

I cannot write this without paying a heartfelt tribute to Jon and Jean, without whose support, encouragement and patience this wonderful day could not have happened. They have made personal sacrifices, including delaying their retirement and moving plans, and I feel sure you will joining me in feeling a deep sense of gratitude to them.

Together, we have saved this wonderful business to be run by and for the community.
