Supporting small business

Mansfield company A-Star Media went to London to take part in the official national launch of Small Business Saturday, a celebration of a wide range of small businesses across the UK.

The team showed its support for the initiative with some slow-motion magic.

Armed with bubbles, party poppers and a camera, John Starkie and Katrina Atherton set up a stall for participants to see themselves perform in slow motion.

Katrina, business director at A-Star Media, said: “This has been an amazing opportunity for us, but it’s also a great opportunity for companies all over the UK to get involved.

“I would tell every business in Mansfield to check out the Small Business Saturday website and see how they can benefit.”

Small Business Saturday is a grassroots, non-commercial campaign that highlights small business success and encourages consumers to ‘shop local’ and support small businesses in their communities.

Each year there is a Small Business 100 campaign, which celebrates promotes 100 small businesses in the 100 days leading to the first Saturday in December, when the businesses are invited to a reception at 10 Downing Street.

Last year, A-Star Media was honoured to take part in the Small Business 100 and have chosen to support the campaign this year.
