Independents supporting our NHS heroes
It's absolutely amazing what can be achieved when we work together. Southport Indies have done us proud once again, not only adapting to the current crisis but also being there for the front line staff.
The sense of community is really shining through the grey mist of this pandemic and it's wonderful to be able to support those businesses who want to give something back.
Here are few lovely ideas we caught via social media, so peruse through our amazing list of independent businesses that are adding that little some extra for NHS and frontline staff.
if you want to get involved or added to our hero's list, please message the team.

Have we missed anyone of Southport Independents hero list? Let us know or tag us in any great initiatives you hear about
All these #SouthportIndies and more are still here, helping us however they can. They need your support to survive this though. If you can order a product from them rather then a large national site, please do. If you can enjoy their online classes rather then a random YouTube search, they would love to see you there. Even if nothing more, follow them, feel the positivity they continue to send out, like share and love their posts and remember them when they open their doors to you again.
