Being part of the Small Biz 100
For the last four years, the 100 have not only received exposure on Small Business Saturday’s social media channels and in the local and national press, but also joined the Small Business Saturday team in London at receptions in both Downing Street and The Treasury Drum with the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
About Small Business Saturday
Small Business Saturday is a grass-roots, non-political, non-commercial campaign that encourages people to support small businesses in their communities, both on the Saturday itself and beyond. The campaign also aims to support, inspire and promote small business all year round.
The day itself takes place on the first Saturday in December each year, but the campaign aims to have a lasting impact on small businesses. This year Small Business Saturday 2017 is on Saturday, December 2nd.
On this special day, customers across the U.K go out and support all types of small businesses, online, in offices and in stores. Many small businesses take part in the day by hosting events and offering discounts.
The initiative started in 2010 in the US, and has generated a lot of custom for small businesses. The campaign is now in its fourth year in the UK.
Our nation’s small businesses provide almost two thirds of private sector employment and almost half of private sector turnover.
So, what are you waiting for? Sign up for one of our goodie-bags, share your stories and let’s get Britain supporting our fantastic small businesses!
