This year Small Business Saturday is once again highlighting 100 small businesses, one a day for the 100 days leading up to Small Business Saturday 2019.

For the last six years, the 100 have not only received exposure on Small Business Saturday's social media channels and in the local and national press, but also joined the Small Business Saturday team in London at receptions in Downing Street, House of Lords and the Treasury Drum with the Chancellor of the Exchequer.

Cattermole Group


Today’s #SmallBiz100, Cattermole, is a family business which specialises in the repair, servicing, and sale of kitchen appliances. However, since becoming a #SmallBiz100, their director, Adam Cattermole, who is 36 and has three young children, has been diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of bowel cancer. The treatment which could prolong his life is no longer available on the NHS due to the high cost: it costs £20,000 per round, and he may require up to 20 rounds. So rather than telling you about Adam’s business, today we’ll be sharing information about his fundraising, and inviting the whole of the small business community to get behind him. You can find out more and donate here by heading through to their social media channels below.
