Double win for HAM

Not that long ago, HAM and I were shortlisted for two awards: Natwest’s Creative Industries Entrepreneur of the Year and the Aviva Women of the Future Arts and Culture Prize. To be nominated, particularly alongside so many inspiring businesses and individuals, was plenty! But this week we attended the award ceremonies and are elated and shocked to share that we won both. Suffice to say, the team have been celebrating a lot over the past couple of days and more importantly, I've been celebrating all of them. HAM really wouldn't be a fraction of what it is now without the incredible people that make it happen, including HAM’s amazing extended family of suppliers, freelancers and retailers, and of course all our customers who give their continued support and encouragement. Thank you! Jo
