SOUTHEND SEPTEMBER 2020: Rosa & Bo based in Southend, Essex will be given a spell in the limelight as part of this year’s Small Biz 100, a national campaign highlighting some of the UK’s most inspiring small businesses.
Marking 100 days building up to Small Business Saturday on 5 December 2020, the Small Biz 100 provides a major profile boost to small businesses across the UK, particularly at this challenging time. 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.

Rosa & Bo was founded in 2016 by mum of two and practising midwife Laura Mudie. They will be placed in the spotlight on the 21st October 2020 and we invite you to join them in celebration. Rosa & Bo design beautiful sensory development toys for babies and toddlers. Their signature Nesting Babies are the first Russian Doll inspired toys safe
from birth and beyond.

Small business owner Laura said: “We are absolutely delighted to have received this recognition and be part of such a fantastic campaign. We are passionate about small business and want to fly the flag for small businesses all over the UK” 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 Rosa & Bo 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 are 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.
