Colleagues from Bingley-based online fashion retailer, Damart have been celebrating this month as the retailer marks its 70th anniversary.
To celebrate the milestone anniversary, as well as launching a limited-edition anniversary collection, colleagues from Damart’s iconic Bingley headquarters and the logistics site based in Steeton have been taking part in a number of celebratory activities to mark the occasion.
Fiona Mannion, Managing Director at Damart said: “It’s been a big year for the Damart brand, being able to mark our 70th anniversary is a momentous occasion and it’s great to be able to celebrate with all of our colleagues who make Damart the company it is today.
“We would also like to say a very big thank to our customers, many of whom have shopped with us down the years and been fantastically loyal to Damart.”
As well as birthday buffet lunches and activities, all colleagues at Bingley and Steeton were presented with a limited edition 70th anniversary thermal top to keep them warm as the colder weather sets in.
Representatives from the Friends of Myrtle Park were also invited to join Damart colleagues for an anniversary picnic. Through a grant received from the Damartex “On Senior’s Side” Foundation, The Friends of Myrtle Park have recently completed the installation of six benches in the lower meadow of the park. These will enable older park users and those with mobility issues to access riverside and woodland views, watch events and games in the meadow and take longer walks, safe in the knowledge that there will be somewhere to sit.
Fiona continued: “We are thrilled to be able to support The Friends of Myrtle Park with this initiative to help bring the park to its former glory for local residents, including many of our colleagues, to enjoy for years to come.”
Damart sold its first thermal garments back in 1953, when the world famous Thermolactyl label was born, the unique fibre was among the first ever to keep people warm and cosy in soft breathable fabrics. Damart has since evolved its clothing expertise and developed new technologies and ranges, while always staying true to delivering comfort and style.
