It’s been a long, hard year for Argies and our customers – but as we continue to move forwards we should remember how far we’ve come and also the importance of saying thank you to all the keyworkers who have got us to the point that we can all open our businesses again.

I hope they really feel valued, but our team want to say thank you again, just because we are genuinely grateful for their service and sacrifice, sacrificing time with family, their time off as many worked overtime, not just the nursing staff but all the community leaders, drivers, porters, carers, volunteers, retail staff – and our own keyworkers who continued to provide service to keyworker clients who were open and the teams who drove our donations to communities and nursing staff during the pandemic. Not all heroes wear capes!

Lastly, I want to thank the people who encouraged us to keep going – they are heroes too.

Our business faced the same challenges as our customers, and the kind messages we had from our own supporters made us determined to continue helping where we could. Last April, we were humbled and touched by this wonderful and totally unexpected message from a local businessman thanking us for our donations to the NHS and keyworkers – it really made us want to keep playing our small part in helping our South Wales community.


Good morning Jo

Although you may not know me, or the Thomas Carroll Group, having just read the Wales Business News, I felt the need to drop you a quick note, and congratulate you, and all the team at Argies for your very kind hearted gesture of free coffee for Key workers in the NHS. So many people are pulling together during these very difficult times, and you are typifying the Community spirit that will help us all get through this period of so much uncertainty.

Thank you on behalf of Thomas Carroll, and all the people of South Wales for your generosity and support to those who are facing this from the front line, and wish you all the future success you so deserve.

Diolch yn fawr iawn.




We’ve seen so much kindness, generosity and humility through hardship and we’re moving forwards with gratitude as the sector opens.

We will continue to play our part as Wales rebuilds and if anyone needs our advice or support, if we can help, we will.

However, for now, for the people who have helped us get to this point, the keyworkers, the carers and the encouragers in our lovely South Wales community we have two little words that come from the bottom of our hearts:

Thank you x
