A SMALL business in Swindon with a big heart could donate £1,000 to the charity of its choice.

Run by website businessforsale.com the Small Business Big Heart Award looks across the UK to find the firms that have made the biggest positive impact to their community.

Last year's winner was the Kilted Lobster Restaurant in Edinburgh, chosen for providing gourmet dining experiences to the homeless.

Rufus Bazley, marketing director at BusinessesForSale.com said: “Our own research shows how important the small business community is in terms of the support it delivers to small, low profile charities in their localities.

"And we know the motivation to help is not a cynical marketing ploy but a sincere desire to make a difference.

“The applications are all incredibly moving and choosing an overall winner is never easy, but once we have it’s great to meet the winners and hear first-hand about their incredible work.”

The 2019 Small Business Big Heart Awards are free to enter. The winner receives £1,000 for a charity of its choice.
