The 8th of March 2019 was a special day for all of us @ nkd as it marked our first full year in business in Rathgar and it’s fair to say it has been a real rollercoaster of a 12 months.
We would like to firstly thank our neighbours, for making us feel so welcome from day one. Also, to you our customers, your continued support means so much and keeps us believing that we are doing something good. We will continue to strive to do better.
A final word on this wonderfully passionate team we have @ nkd… great things in business are never done by one person they’re done by a team of people and we are lucky to have the best teams in town. Here’s too many more birthdays!
1st march 2019...
Feed Our Homeless
Our charity initiative, Buy One Give One to our Charity (Monday – Wednesday)
Feed Our Homeless is a way we can help others a little bit. Over the past number of weeks the queues for food at the FOH soup kitchen outside the Bank of Ireland opposite Trinity College are growing, and FOH has found themselves running out of food for people.
Well what a great time we had getting involved with the Bushy Park Run during the month of January.
This event is free to the public and is organised solely by volunteers and we were really blown away by the great sense of community when we came down on our first week.
So the challenge was set for our young nkd team to come along to each Saturday morning in January and take part in the 5km run around the beautiful Bushy Park.
A lot of the team had never completed a 5km run before and although some were apprehensive, I think it's clear to see from the pictures that we all really enjoyed ourselves and it was a great way to bond as a team as everyone supported each other throughout the whole experience which is what we are all about @nkd.
The benefits of getting out and being active are clear to see and the feel good factor that came about from doing this challenge amongst the team was the biggest positive to take from this.
The great news is the guys @bushyparkrun are there every Saturday morning at 9.30am so I highly recommend coming down and joining us for the next park run you won't be disappointed!!
Here @ nkd we want to “bring January on” like it’s the summer of ’69!
We want to step out into the summer sunshine, get active, get moving and continue to connect with others. We believe summer is a state of mind, and through connecting with and helping others we can all feel that little bit better.
In January some people feel that the fun is over and the winter will never end…
We have the power to create summer and light in our mind through closing our eyes and visualising a beautiful summer morning. Being active, even a quick walk at lunchtime can really make a difference to our well-being.
@ nkd we are coming together on Saturday mornings at our local park to take part in the Bushy Park Run at 9.30am. Everyone’s excited to do something outdoors together, the support, fun and encouragement from each other to get involved has been really motivational.
We will post more about our journey as the weeks go on!
