It was an honour to nominate Barley Massey, founder and owner of Hackney business 'Fabrications', for the All-Party Corporate Responsibility Group’s ‘2019 Responsible Business Champions’ award. Today I welcomed her in Parliament at the awards reception and thanked her for her business' 20 year dedication to championing sustainability in Hackney.

Fabrications is Barley’s open studio and upcycling emporium that turns local textile waste streams into new products and services. In addition, Fabrications delivers creative workshops and programmes for multiple local projects that help address different challenges (mental health, trauma, isolation, and environmental issues).
