Voucher firm among 100 small firms

Rebecca says listing recognition is special gift

RebeccaRebecca Christensen’s gift voucher company is among the companies selected for this year’s Small Business Saturday.

It has been named among 100 small businesses in the UK ( seven in Scotland) which will be celebrated on 5 December, a day dedicated to small firms.

The campaign is a nationwide promotional and marketing tool for small businesses, embracing one-man-bands, through to high growth firms.

Last year 16.5 million adults supported Small Business Saturday with research showing 64% of the UK was aware of the campaign. The ‘Small Biz 100’ also attended a Christmas Fair in Downing Street.

The campaign trended at number one on Twitter on the day and received around 3.5 million views on its Facebook page. This year it carries the theme “5 million small businesses, 1 big day”.

Ms Christensen, whose Edinburgh-based business is close to marking its first year, said on her website: “We are so proud to be a part of this.”

“The team at Love from Indie Street just love the fact that this day of celebrating small businesses falls bang after the hideous day that is Black Friday with all of its mass consumerism gone mad,” said Ms Christensen.

“We would love to help other small businesses in Edinburgh mark the day so if you are a business owner in Edinburgh give us a shout on to see how we could collaborate to make this an extra special day.”
