Jamie gives backing to Small Business Saturday – this week

UB2.jpgJamie McMahon, Labour parliamentary candidate for North West Leicestershire has called on local residents to join him in celebrating the contribution of small firms in North West Leicestershire as part of this year’s Small Business Saturday on 6 December.

Small Business Saturday is a grass-roots campaign that encourages people to shop locally and support small businesses in the local community. Originally the idea of a Small Business Saturday came from Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary and last year, its first year, was the biggest celebration of small businesses in the UK and gave a boost to local shops through extra trade of nearly £500m.

Across the UK different activities are taking place to promote Britain’s small businesses.

Jamie is encouraging local people to spend locally in small firms as part of Small Business Saturday.

Jamie McMahon, Labour parliamentary candidate for North West Leicestershire said:

“Our small businesses are vital to North West Leicestershire. Whether it’s Coalville, Ashby or any of our centres the small businesses there make such a massive difference. Only two weeks ago we enjoyed Coalville Food Festival and this is yet another opportunity to celebrate and support North West Leicestershire’s small businesses.

It is so important that we support our small and independent businesses. They are a vital part of our local economy and local community and we need to get behind them. They matter to our area. They add character and are a source of local jobs.

That’s why I’m pleased to be supporting Small Business Saturday this year. There’re lots of great businesses in North West Leicestershire and the campaign is a great way of raising awareness and helping boost trade.”
