Aldermore Bank is delighted to support Small Business Saturday, an initiative designed to increase the awareness of the vital role SMEs play to the UK economy.

The campaign, which launches in the United Kingdom on December 7th, aims to bring SMEs from different industries together in order to promote the positive impact small businesses have on local communities. The initiative is inspired by the American 'Small Business Saturday'; a campaign launched in 2010 to promote local retailers in the US.

Below, we look at the history of Small Business Saturday, as well as highlighting its most vocal supporters and advocates.
