Bristol entrepreneurs invited to Downing Street to celebrate Small Business Saturday

The co-founders of a Bristol-based online photography store are among a select group attending a special event at 10 Downing Street this week.

BRISTOL, U.K. - Dec. 2, 2013 - PRLog -- Virginia Allwood and Dan Martin, who run LeShopUK.com, have been invited to the prime minister’s house on 6 December to celebrate Small Business Saturday, a US-inspired initiative taking place on 7 December to encourage the public to support independent firms.

Allwood and Martin, who set up the business selling exclusive fine art photography prints of beautiful places around Britain in July, received the invitation after being one of 100 small firms profiled in the lead to the big day.

A bus that has been touring the UK to promote Small Business Saturday will make its final stop at Downing Street when the event will take place.

Commenting on the invitation, Allwood says: “Attending such a prestigious event so soon after launching our business is an absolute joy! Entrepreneurs need all the help they can get in the early days so Small Business Saturday is a brilliant initiative.

“We don’t yet know whether David Cameron will be at the party but if he is, we will head straight over to give him tips about what photography he should be hanging on the walls of Number 10!”

A photograph taken by Allwood was recently selected from almost 1,000 images submitted in the 24 Hours in Bristol competition to appear on the front cover of the official 2014 visitor guide to the city.

The photographs LeShopUK.com sells are taken for the UK travel, food and culture blog LifestyleDistrict.co.uk which Allwood and Martin also run.
