small business saturday pulls into downing street

The Small Business Saturday bus pulled into Downing Street last night for the final stop on its 3000-mile national tour – and the Seven Hills team were there to greet it.

The bus has travelled across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, visiting more than 30 locations over 25 days. Along the way, it has offered support and mentoring to small businesses, along with a platform for them to engage with the public in their local communities.

It was part of No.11’s official reception for representatives from a number of the UK’s best small businesses ahead of Small Business Saturday 2018, which will be celebrated on 1 December.

Financial Secretary to the Treasury Mel Stride welcomed guests on behalf of the Treasury, with Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond, Health Secretary Matthew Hancock and Minister for Small Business Kelly Tolhurst all there to express support for the campaign.

Small Business Saturday is open to all small businesses. It’s the UK’s most successful small business campaign, which has enjoyed longstanding backing from the UK Government, including the Prime Minister and Mayor of London. Last year an estimated £748m was spent with small businesses across the UK on Small Business Saturday.

Seven Hills is delighted to support Small Business Saturday. For help finding your local businesses, use the Small Business Finder.
