‘Supergran’ Gives Arise A Helping Hand In Scotland and Saves Onshoring Event!

The Arise team suffered a slow puncture as they arrived at one of their open days in the Highlands last week to promote onshoring and bringing work back home.

They were overheard discussing the issue by their 76 year old host, who mentioned that she had a pump and she would be happy to provide it. Thanking her, the team set up the room and then returned to their car only to find the sprightly septuagenarian just putting the finishing touches to her successful attempts to reinflate the tyre with her pump!

“We were not surprised to learn that the lady had already been awarded an MBE for her services to the community!”, commented Dickon Moon, Arise’s EMEA Director of Strategic Sourcing. “I actually asked her if we could borrow her for every open day, because she also made tea for everyone attending and connected up our overhead projector too!”
