With Love Project

Last year we were visited by Chris & Rob of the With Love Project

“With Love is a site dedicated to finding people who produce things with a passion and purpose. It is brought to you by Chris Roberts and Rob Evans and documents their search to find individuals who truly care about what they do and what they produce.

Asking one single question along the way… “Why do you do what you do?”

We are really pleased to have been included in the Film & Book. Thank you.
