Prime Minister, Theresa May, said: “Small Business Saturday is an opportunity for us to celebrate the success of the UK’s 5.4 million small businesses, from family run restaurants, to innovative tech start-ups, to local corner shops.
“I am delighted that we had such a great representation of firms here in Downing Street to mark this event and recognise the prosperity they bring to the UK.”
Boo’s Toy Shop owner, Polley, added: “I am delighted to have been chosen as one of the 100 companies nationwide to attend this very special event at 10 Downing Street and take this opportunity to thank all my loyal customers for their support without which my business would be much less successful.”
