One of the East of England’s leading accountancy firms, Moore Thompson, is to join hundreds of professionals across the UK to celebrate this year’s Small Business Saturday and lend their support to local SMEs.
Due to take place on 1 December 2018, Small Business Saturday is designed to highlight small business success and encourages consumers to ‘shop local’ and support small businesses in their communities.
As regular advisors to some of the region’s fastest growing small companies, Moore Thompson’s team felt it was ideally placed to act as an ambassador to the grassroots campaign.
In order to show its support, it has been raising the profile of the day by informing clients via social media and its website about businesses who are taking part.
Hundreds of local companies near to the firm’s offices in Spalding, Peterborough, Wisbech and Market Deeping will be taking part in the day, with some offering discounts to customers to encourage them to shop locally.
Mark Hildred, Managing Partner at Moore Thompson, said: “SMEs play an important part in our region’s economy and so it is important that this is recognised locally by costumers.
“Small Business Saturday is a fantastic way of raising their profile and letting more people know about the products and services that they have to offer.
“As a firm we have a lot of small business clients and so we wanted to do our bit to improve awareness of this special day.”
