Why are we doing this?
I always wanted my own business. When I was growing up my parents had their own very successful hairdressers in Leeds and I knew that I wanted a business to call my own. The only problem was that life took over. I went to university (because that's what everyone did), I met my now husband. We bought a house, got married and had a baby. Before I could blink I was almost 30 and in a job I hated. It was time for a change.
My boy is almost 5 and he is my Hero. He inspires me to be the best person I can. To be more patient, more humble, more considerate. To set the very best example I can. I'm not the best parent, if fact probably fairly mediocre at best but I'm learning and he is my teacher. He inspired me and here we are - welcome to my Hero!
Who we use?
All our suppliers are fabulous. Some of them have been in the industry for years and years - others are relative newcomers (like us). Some of these businesses' have grown and become well recognised. Some are still small but perfectly formed, home run businesses', but one thing we all have in common is - we are all mums. The bonus is that all our designers are based right here in the UK - supporting British business'. We are always looking out for new suppliers so if you fit the bill contact us.
The Charity we support?
We are a business but we feel very strongly that as we have a platform here at Hero we should use it. Therefore Hero is proud to say that we have partnered with a charity called CALM.
Suicide is the biggest single killer of men aged between 20 and 45 in the UK. No we didn't know that either! CALM raises awareness on this issue and Hero absolutely believes that in doing so will help save lots of lives. Why is this important to Hero? Well after all, our boys will be men someday.
So don't forget when your boys have outgrown or destroyed anything you have bought from Hero you can send them back to us and we will re-sell them as pre-loved and all profits will be donated to CALM. Plus you will earn a little discount off your next order!
