For a 2nd year running the Small Business Saturday tour bus was back in Essex, this time spending the day in Colchester High Street.
Since being chosen as one of three Essex businesses to make up the SmallBiz100 in 2017 we have been big advocates of the grass roots initiative which was first launched in the USA under President Barack Obama to encourage shoppers to shop local on the first Saturday of December. The initiative came to the UK some 6 years ago and has since supported and showcased businesses from all backgrounds.
We were delighted to be invited back as SmallBiz100 Alumni and had a stall in the High Street promoting our business for the day. We had a great interview with Pete from Peak B, the organisation who run Small Business Saturday here in the UK. We were also privileged to spend some time with Will Quince, MP for Colchester, who fully embraced and got behind our #NHS70/#ThankYouNHS initiative and even did this video. Thanks Will!
