Last month we announced that ESP have been selected for Small Business Saturday 100 for 2020. Marking 100 days building up to Small Business Saturday on 5th December 2020, the Small Biz 100 provides a major profile boost to 100 selected small businesses across the UK, particularly at this challenging time. Showcasing a daily celebration of the Small Biz 100 through social media, the campaign aims to support and celebrate a vibrant range of small, community driven businesses.
ESP will be given our day in the spotlight on 17th November!
We also look forward to attending the Small Biz 100 Blue Tie (Virtual) Event on 1st October. The event is an annual Small Biz 100 tradition, which is usually held in central London with invitations being sent to all Small Biz 100 previous alumni as well as the current year’s businesses.
Michelle Ovens MBE, Director of Small Business Saturday UK, said: “Congratulations to Earth Science Partnership for joining the Small Biz 100! This campaign highlights the amazing, positive impact small firms have on communities across the UK. Given the phenomenally tough time small businesses have had, and the special role they played supporting communities in lockdown, it’s vital we continue to support them as this crisis continues. This year’s Small Business Saturday is going to be the most important one yet, and we’re determined it will also be the best.”
Now in its eighth year in the UK, Small Business Saturday has grown significantly each year, with a record turnout of 17.6 million people choosing to shop small on the day last year, generating an estimated £800m.
