Brothers Jacob and Sam James, co-founders of fresh salad dressing company Tigg’s, will be donating all profits of the business from 2020 equally between Samaritans and the NHS. This is to support the critical work both organisations are doing during the Covid-19 crisis – and the brothers are calling out for other SMEs to help where possible too.
With the current lockdown restrictions and the uncertainty that it brings, the coronavirus outbreak is having a knock-on effect on many people’s mental wellbeing. Having a close association with Samaritans, the brothers felt that it was imperative to support the cause as well as the vital work the NHS is doing on the frontline.
Jacob James, co-founder, said: “As a small UK business, we want to do our part during this pandemic – which is why we have decided to donate all our profits from this year. But we don’t want to stop there. We want to inspire other British businesses who can, to do the same. Any business who is still fortunate to be trading and making a profit during this challenging time, why not think about donating a proportion to charities who need it to continue the vital work they are carrying out. After all, we are all in this together.”
