Meet the Dragons! Spruce York pitch at Rudding Park’s Dragon’s Den event in January!

We were delighted to be invited to pitch our wooden products to The Rudding Park Dragons at their Dragon’s Den style event.
We created a Rudding Park branded cheeseboard with cheeses from the menu’s of The Clocktower brasserie and Horto Restaurant at Rudding Park.
The Dragon’s also requested to see our animal dippy egg boards and bespoke bathboards for in the bedrooms. We find out if they will be ordering in the next month or so, it was very competitive with  9 other fabulous Yorkshire based brands being shortlisted to the finals along with ourselves.
Rudding Park have kindly donated a overnight stay and spa break to a charity of our choice as a thank you for us taking part. We are happy to have chosen
The Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre in Harrogate to receive this donation which will be available as a prize in one of their upcoming fundraisers.
