Sandra White MSP for Glasgow Kelvin is supporting Small Business Saturday on 2nd December.

Supporting the campaign, Sandra said:

“I am pleased to be supporting Small Business Saturday this weekend, and I look forward to getting around Glasgow visiting local businesses and hearing from them about their needs and ambitions.”

“Growing small businesses can have a big impact on our local economy, and we know that every pound spent locally brings a boost worth many times its value. 

“You can help support local communities, entrepreneurs, and vibrant high streets by taking part in the Small Business Saturday campaign by visiting a local business and sharing the message on social media.”

Get involved.
