25 years = 25 Pledges To Pay It Forward
Turning 25 is a big deal and having achieved so much success during that time the team at Tradeprint has decided to make 25 pledges throughout the 25th year.
Some are fun, some have a more serious undertone but the idea is to stretch ourselves to pay something forward. We want to start 2022 mindful of the environment in which we live and the people with whom we surround ourselves.
Starting in 1997 as a family business, our roots are firmly planted in Dundee soil but as the business has grown, our branches have stretched nationwide throughout the whole of the UK. Several of our pledges have been made with Dundee in mind as this is our home and we want to enrich the community as much as possible.
These pledges have been made with good faith and we are looking forward to giving them a go.
