The Small Business Saturday Bus Tour is coming to Leeds

Sent on behalf of Small Business Saturday UK:

Small Business Saturday UK, the nationwide campaign to support and promote the UK’s 5.7 million small businesses, has announced it will tour the country to spotlight and support the nation’s top growth businesses.

Now in its sixth year, the Small Business Saturday campaign bus will travel over 3000 miles visiting 30 locations over 25 days and will drop into Leeds Kirkgate Market on Monday 5 November between 10am – 2pm and will be located on the outdoor market. The Small Business Saturday campaign team will be offering free mentoring sessions to small businesses which require booking through the website www.smallbusinesssaturdayuk.com in advance.

Cllr Asghar Khan, Leeds City Council’s deputy executive member with responsibility for markets, said:

"The Small Business Saturday Bus Tour is a great opportunity for small businesses across Leeds to access free business mentoring sessions. We have so many dedicated small businesses across Leeds, and having such a wealth of them within the market makes it a perfect location to host the tour."

Small Business Saturday is the UK's most successful small business campaign, which last year saw an estimated £748m spent with small businesses across the UK on Small Business Saturday and will be celebrated on the 1st December this year.
