Two weeks ago, we hosted a special afternoon tea for some of our longest-serving team members at our first Career Milestone Celebration in London. Team members who attended were celebrating career milestones of 15 years through to an incredible 50 years with the business! Congratulations to everyone who attended, we hope we'll be celebrating with you for years to come.
In conjunction with Thames21 and Zoological Society of London (ZSL) 50 team members in London used their volunteering day to celebrate World Oceans Day by cleaning up a local Thames beach in our fifth annual beach clean - one of TWO this year!
This was a hands-on day dealing with all the waste that ends up on our beaches - from plastic bottles to cotton buds. After recently removing wet wipes in Selfridges London, the beauty team were particularly horrified to see all the wet wipes on the beach. Great work Team Selfridges!
At Selfridges, we wear our badges with pride! We love to hear what our iconic yellow badge means to our team members. Jamie not only associates his with the history, creativity and customer service that we are all incredibly passionate about; he also associates it with making a life-changing move from his home in Devon and we love this! It's proof that with hard work, you can make anything happen and we are all about that.
In a bid to make drinking water more accessible and turn the tide on plastic pollution in our oceans, we unveiled our first public water fountain outside our Duke Street entrance last year, and it's been hydrating customers, team members and the public ever since. Now that the sun is shining in London, what better excuse do you need to stop by? To learn more about our sustainability initiative Buying Better/Inspiring Change, head over to the Selfridges website.

What a night! The Brasserie of Light served as the incredible setting for our 2018/19 Extraordinary People Awards final this week as we recognised and celebrated team members who live, demonstrate and champion our Values and our sustainability approach - Buying Better, Inspiring Change. We'd like to say a huge congratulations to all of our winners and finalists - we couldn't be more proud! #TeamSelfridges

It's almost time for our first beach clean of the year! We encourage our team members to volunteer one day a year for a cause that matters to them. Many of them choose to volunteer on our annual Beach Clean with ZSL, by planting trees with the Woodland Trust or by selecting an activity for a charity close to their hearts.
