Retailing Differently: What makes our retail offering unique? Take a look at the story behind our produce with this film made by customer, craftisan and animator Bob Banks who captured the magic of Unwrapped in one of his creations:
Unwrapping the Venture thanks to: We have worked in partnership with local businesses, growers and food producers to make this a destination shop to complement the existing high street and markets of Ely. We have received investment funding from Cambridgeshire Community Foundation’s Innovate and Cultivate Fund, Enterprise East Cambs, School of Social Entrepreneurs’ Trade Up Programme. The summer of 2019 was spent up-cycling and repurposing lots of donated furniture and goods, a huge thank you to EVERYONE who played a part, sanded down, painted up or scrubbed the shop to make it a beautiful retail area. Most of our store furniture was donated by Emmaus Cambridge and a huge thank you to the Companions for picking Prospects Trust as their solidarity partner. You too can grab a pre-loved treasure from their HQ or their Ely market stall. We stocked the shop with lots of lovely crowdfunding donors & larder lords – we thank our customers for showing their custom before we turned our key.
