APPETITE & Secret Pillow
Staff at Appetite4Recruitment got to indulge in some pillow talk when they were each surprised with a Secret Pillow.
Appetite4Recruitment gave its team the pillows – which turn into blankets – as a thank you for all their hard work and also to celebrate International Women’s Day.
The Secret Pillow Project is a social business that trains women in poverty to make Secret Pillows then helps to sell them on the international market.
But it was no duvet day for the twenty five staff as they had to wait until home time to make the most of the comfy pillows.
Nick Clover, a former chef, waiter, bartender and manager who set up the company in 2003, said: “I was inspired and excited to hear how the Secret Pillow Project changes lives by empowering women in countries which are far less fortunate than ours. The pillows themselves are awesome.”
“It made perfect sense to give them as gifts for my employees as a way to say thank you and to bring such positivity into our business.”
The Secret Pillow team stormed the head office in Mill Lane, Godalming and handed out Secret Pillows last week on the first working day after Valentine’s day to surprised and delighted staff.
The Secret Pillow Project was set up through Crowdfunding by Fritha Vincent, a former Manor House student. She said: “The goal is to empower women to take care of their children to the best of their ability and every pillow sold helps change lives. “Appetite4Recruitment has been so supportive of our social business and Secret Pillow Storming is one way businesses can work with us.” Nick has surprised all four Appetite4Recruitment offices with Secret Pillow gifts and has been thrilled with the response from staff.
