The second Small Business Big Heart awards are fast approaching, where one lucky business will win 1, 000 for the good cause of its choice.

The awards were launched last year by BusinessesForSale.com, a website that specialises in helping business develop growth and exit strategy plans.

Rufus Bazley, marketing director at BusinessesForSale.com explains, Were in touch with the UK’s small business community on a regular basis, and know first-hand that individuals who take the decision to be their own boss mostly do so because they’re seeking a work-life balance large corporates simply can’t deliver. Collectively the psyche of this be the boss? brigade takes a more mindful approach to business, one which is keen and able to support the causes they connect with.

in the light of this, we created the Small Business Big Heart Awards to celebrate the amazing work of every small business that gives time, expertise and support to the communities and organisations they care about.

In its launch year, the volume and quality of applicants was incredibly high. Of nine regional finalists, two were presented with their prizes during the Small Business Saturday Bus Tour, four received special commendations and the overall winner was congratulated in person by The Right Honourable Sir Michael Fallon, Secretary of State for Defence.

In advance of the awards this year, BusinessesForSale.com is undertaking research to get a clearer overall view of the many ways small businesses in this country help support their local communities, as well as other worthy causes and charities.

we want to champion small business with big hearts even more this year, Rufus explains, and to enable us to do so wed like quantifiable facts about the number of small business that give, the variety of ways in which they help others and their overall impact across the UK to the many individuals, groups and organisations that benefit.

Which is why BusinessesForSale.com is conducting a short survey to discover what proportion of small businesses in the UK do their bit for charity, and in what capacity.

The findings will be used to get a better understanding of trends in small business giving and the motivation behind why so many are prepared to go to extraordinary lengths to make a difference.

BusinessesForSale.com is also offering an incentive; every survey respondent will be entered into a prize draw to win a 100 Amazon voucher.
