An Advent-ful Christmas

Written by Active Minds on Friday the 19th of December 2014.


We are honoured to be one of 24 small British businesses celebrated in an advent calendar by the Government’s Business is GREAT campaign.

Poppy Reed of Active Minds opens door 17 on the Business is GREAT advent calendar

Business is GREAT was launched at the end of 2013 by the UK Government as a demonstration of its commitment to empowering small British businesses.

On November 6th 2013 Vince Cable kicked off a wave of activity designed to build and improve the way that Government supports small businesses across the country.

This year, Active Minds was chosen by Business is GREAT to be featured and celebrated in an Advent Calendar that has toured the country, and on Wednesday 17th December 2014 we were invited to the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills in Westminster to open our door. Sadly, Vince Cable was unable to make it, but we had a great time learning more about the Government campaign and having our pictures taken with the giant advent calendar.

We wish all of the small businesses featured in the Business is GREAT campaign a very Happy Christmas and New Year – may 2015 be the best year for your business yet!
