Like millions of others up and down the country, many of our team at The Perfume Shop have been finding ways to keep themselves entertained while at home over the last few months.
From raising money for the NHS to spending time learning or developing new skills, today we’re sharing what our amazing team have been up to while our stores have been closed.
The Perfume Shop marathon
When our Government announced that we could leave our homes for daily exercise, The Perfume Shop team jumped on the chance to not just make themselves feel good, but to do good in the process too. Over the course of 10 days in April, members of our team used their daily exercise to run, walk or jog 26.2 miles - the distance of a marathon - to raise money for the NHS Charities COVID-19 Urgent Appeal.
They set themselves an original target of £2,000 but they smashed through that goal and have gone onto to raise more than £5,000 for their effort! Well done team TPS!
Exploring the Great Outdoors
With lockdown coinciding with the arrival of spring, our staff put their daily walks to beneficial use by exploring the areas surrounding their home. Spending time outside has always been an important part of improving our health and wellbeing, but even more so when the time we have outside is limited. Over the last few months our staff have spent time exploring beautiful flower-filled gardens, breathing in the fresh sea air nearby, they’ve stretched their legs across fields and spent some time with nature.
Channelling our inner Mary Berry
Who knew so many of us were harbouring some fantastic baking skills! From Insta-worthy banana breads to making enough flapjacks to sustain a whole family, the country went a little crazy for baking and our staff were no different! From creative chocolate masterpieces to mouth-watering brownies, we've mastered some new cooking skills so now our kitchens can always be full of home-made treats!
Pets at home
Can you imagine what our pets were thinking the first few weeks of lockdown? Our furry and feathered friends were likely used to having the house to themselves to snooze and play in peace, and here we are interrupting their days with conference calls and lunchtime works outs! Luckily for us, many of our pets embraced the newfound company and even enjoyed the extra attention from employees over video. Here are a few of our best friends getting involved with the running of The Perfume Shop from home!
