Many of you will already know about Small Business Saturday, when the focus, just before Christmas each year, is on promoting small, local businesses. Each year, they choose 100 small businesses as the centre of their campaign – you can apply now to be one of the SmallBiz100, and the benefits are huge!
About Small Biz Saturday
Small Business Saturday UK is a grassroots, non-commercial campaign, which highlights small business success and encourages consumers to ‘shop local’ and support small businesses in their communities.
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. The date for your diary this year is Saturday, 1st December.
On Small Business Saturday, 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.
This year Small Business Saturday is once again highlighting 100 small businesses, one a day for the 100 days leading up to Small Business Saturday 2018.
For the last five 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.
Applications close on June 30, 2018. Successful applicants will be notified by email in August.

Last year, Norfolk Deli in Hunstanton were one of the select 100. It doesn’t cost anything to enter, and the potential benefits are large! To put your business forward, just go here. We’d love to have another local small business featured, do let us know if you’re entering, and especially if you’re one of the chosen few.
