Small Business Saturday bus tour send off

The Small Business Saturday bus has hit the road for its month-long journey around the UK, in the lead up to this year's celebration on Saturday December 3.

FSB was delighted to host the bus at our Head Office in Blackpool on Friday, before it set off to start its tour in Aberdeen. Local FSB member Dahlia's Kitchen produced a food hamper to fuel the team for the journey ahead. And Blackpool South MP Gordon Marsden joined FSB members and staff in bidding the bus farewell.

The "Small Business, Big Difference" themed A-B bus tour travels from Aberdeen to Bournemouth, ending its journey on November 25. The bus tour will host workshops and seminars at its daily destinations.

FSB is a partner of the independent, grassroots Small Business Saturday campaign which is now in its fourth year. Last year more than £600 million was spent with small businesses on the day – an endorsement of the tremendous contribution they make to the economy and communities across the UK.
