Sean Barber commented: “We were absolutely delighted to be chosen by Theo Paphitis as his Small Business Sunday winners. To receive advice and business connections from such a respected gentlemen in retail is an absolute honour. We do service the UK but in reality we are still classed as a small business, so for me, there in no better accolade we could have received at this stage.

“Since we were announced as a winner we have received enquiries from all over the UK and we are working on some successful business partnerships moving forward because of the exposure Theo has given us. We can’t thank him enough the boost it has given to the business.”
