Awards & Press

On 30th June 2019 we had the honour of winning the Theo Paphitis Small Business Sunday. The #SBS competition runs weekly on Twitter, where small businesses tweet @TheoPaphitis and describe their businesses. Every Monday night at 8pm, Theo reviews and chooses his favourite lucky six who are then re-tweeted. As he has nearly 500,000 followers, this provides a massive boost to the chosen lucky businesses.
