This year we’re celebrating our 10th anniversary here at Babipur. We first opened our doors back in 2007 as a work from home business when our children were babies. Still based in Snowdonia we’ve steadily grown and we now employ 15 people. Our aim at Babipur remains the same as it always was, to introduce fair trade, sustainable and ethical products to our customers while offering great customer service. We have lots of plans for the future and we hope to have another successful 10 years ahead of us.
We know how much Babipurians (a slang for Babipur followers) love giveaways and competitions so we recently ran a competition asking you, our customers, to wish us a Happy Birthday. The entries completely blew us away! We are extremely grateful to all who entered and made such an incredible effort. What else can we say, you guys are simply awesome! We put together this video to show off some of the entries we received.
We had to narrow down the entries to 10 winners which has been very difficult because there have been so many fantastic offerings. We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who took the time to enter, there were lots and lots entries that we wanted so much to give a prize to but we had to choose the winners and here they are in no particular order, the prizes were chosen at random.
Beth made this amazing birthday cake with nappies on a washing line and it also came with rainbow cupcakes and nappy cupcakes too. Hand delivered to Babipur towers (Pride carrier winner)
Becky made a birthday calendar with the help of her little one which we thought was wonderful (Babipur playmat winner)
Paige made this crochet blanket for us, it’s huge! The time and care taken on this is astonishing (12 Grapat Nins winner)

Jade sent us this picture of some special Babipur memories and also had a sticker made for the rear window of her VW van which was spotted by another Babipurian before her entry came in. That’s dedication (Bajo pebbles winner)

Thank you – Gift voucher for all the entries
We keep saying it but we were completely overwhelmed by all the amazing entries, it was so so hard to choose the winners. We were also sent home made cakes, biscuits, hand made elephant toys, drawings, cards, well wishes and lots and lots of creative, fun and beautiful pictures.
There were so many entries that we really wanted to include in the winners list but there simply wasn’t room. We’re so grateful for the effort you’ve all put in that we’d like offer everyone who entered a £5.00 gift voucher. We thought this was a nice way to say thank you to everyone and that you could use the voucher to save towards a future birthday or Christmas which lots of our customers use our gift vouchers for already. To claim your voucher please email rainbow “at” babipur.co.uk with a link to your entry.
Thanks again from Jolene, Peter & the team
