Small Business SaturdaySmall businesses are at the beating heart of the nation’s economy, and we are great supporters of other small businesses like ourselves through our involvement in initiatives such as Hessle First.

Last Saturday, 2rd December was Small Business Saturday, and we were proud to be involved. The event was sponsored by American Express and encourages everyone to use small businesses on the day.

Digitalquill Supports Small Business Saturday

This Small Business Saturday, we were honoured to act as a host to our local MP for Hull West and Hessle, Emma Hardy. Emma was keen to visit as many small businesses as possible over the weekend and she was interested to find out more about the IT Support, software development and RFID systems we create for clients in Hull, East Yorkshire and all over the world.

Ms. Hardy said on Facebook: “I loved being able to visit some of the local small businesses today. We have such creativity here in Hull and Hessle.”

UK Small Businesses in Numbers

According to the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) of which we are also a proud member, small businesses account for more than 99% of all private sector businesses. Almost 16 million people in the UK work for small businesses, which is 60% of all private sector jobs. We think that in these tough economic times, those figures are worth celebrating and supporting.

So why not shop small not just on Small Business Saturday, but think twice on every other day before passing your money on to the corporate behemoths? For more information on the annual event, check out the Small Business Saturday website.
