So, we’ve had Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Thankfully, I’ve missed them both, but UK weekend sales were expected to splurge over £7 billion, so I guess that counts as a success for businesses. There will probably be even better deals in December as people cut down on their spending after the weekend, and shops once again want to reduce their Christmas stock.
Far more interesting is #GivingTuesday when we can all do things to make a difference to others, like charitable works or contributions, volunteering, donating to a charity shop, doing a beach clean or just being nice and cooking someone an unexpected meal. There are loads of ideas here.
If you know of anyone doing something good for others, then Bude & Beyond is very happy to give them a shout out and public thank you, so feel free to tell us!
