Somerset's New Subversive Art Gallery Proud To Join Ranks Of #SMALLBIZ100
Marking 100 days building up to Small Business Saturday (https://smallbusinesssaturdayuk.com/)
Showcasing a daily celebration of the Small Biz 100 through social media, the campaign aims to support and celebrate a vibrant range of small, community driven businesses across the UK.
We Have Your Prints is an online art gallery founded by Jay Crammond and focuses on Street art, Urban art and Contemporary art; and will be placed in the spotlight on 11th September with free art giveaways and a great competition.
Gallery Owner Jay said: "The opportunity to work with Small Biz 100 and the 99 other small businesses from around the UK is exciting as it gives us an opportunity to share ideas, learn from and support each other. We want to build a community that puts artists and art fans together. Being an online gallery our community will be geographically diverse, however still feel like a local community, allowing us to support our artists – who are small businesses themselves"
Among the other firms being recognised are a family run florist in Bristol, a beauty salon in Inverness, and a wine school in Chester.
Michelle Ovens MBE, Director of Small Business Saturday UK, said:
"Congratulations to We Have Your Prints for joining the Small Biz 100! This campaign highlights the amazing, positive impact small firms have on communities across the UK. Given the phenomenally tough time small businesses have had, and the special role they played supporting communities in lockdown, it's vital we continue to support them as this crisis continues. This year's Small Business Saturday is going to be the most important one yet, and we're determined it will also be the best."
Now in its eighth year in the UK, Small Business Saturday has grown significantly each year, with a record turnout of 17.6 million people choosing to shop small on the day last year, generating an estimated £800m.
