A call to action film

What we’ve learnt through the last year is that we’re longing for human connection, a sense of kindness, compassion and empathy, people are looking for humanity, and we didn’t realise how much we relied on our communities and independent businesses for that - until we weren’t able to visit them.

Our communities represent something at the very heart of what it means to be human. They are places where we come together on a common ground not only to buy things but for engagement, entertainment and creativity. They are places where we learn, understand and support each other.

But, the reality is our communities have been under attack for years from out of town retail parks, online conglomerates and now Covid-19. The result of which has brought many of our communities and their independent businesses to their knees. Resulting in us losing a part of who we are.

We aim to help restore economic growth across local economies in a safe and rewarding way that economically benefits our communities and the livelihoods that depend on them.

To achieve that, we are calling on you to believe that individuals make the future. And we do it by believing that things can be different; we only need to take the first step.

When enough of us makes that first step, if we start acting together, we’ll create a different path for our communities, a path where they are a crucial part of our economic recovery and places that bring people and cultures together where humanity thrives.
