To say the last few months have been challenging would be somewhat of an understatement. In all walks of life, what we do and how we approach the day has changed, mostly beyond all recognition. Amongst many things, the pandemic has made many of us realise that things that we used to take for granted can be taken from us without much warning.
There are many things I’ve personally missed, but there’s no doubt in my mind of what I’ve missed the most. People. Whether that’s in my personal life or at work, that basic desire to interact with other people has been taken away and I’ve felt that longing for people every single day.
Whilst there is undoubtedly some way to go before we return to normal, if indeed we ever will, the recent loosening of restrictions has ridden over the hill like a knight in very shiny armour. Catching up with friends and family has been a joy. I’m determined to never take those people and the time I spend with them for granted again.
One thing I’ve never taken for granted is how lucky I am to do what I do for work. Utility Aid, and the service we provide, is vital. We support not-for-profit organisations, helping them source their energy at the lowest possible cost, allowing them to keep as much of their money as possible to spend on the front-line services they provide.
Whilst at Utility Aid we’ve adapted to working from home and maintaining the service we provide, many of our customers have found the period of lockdown incredibly hard. I’m so very hopeful that, as restrictions begin to ease, they can get back to what they do best. Supporting people.
And rest assured, we will be there every step of the way with them as we all adapt to the new normal. To our customers, we’ve got your back. If there’s anything we can do, all you need to do is ask. And if you’re not a customer of ours why not get in touch to see if we can help you save money. Now, more than ever, every penny counts.
I wish you all the very best in the coming weeks.
