Sheffield small business invited to HM Treasury event to mark Small Business Saturday
A small business from Sheffield was one of 100 from around the country invited to represent the UK’s 5.4 million small businesses at a special event at The Treasury on Friday 5th 2015 to mark the UK’s third Small Business Saturday the following day.
Rachel Salway, owner of Roseannah, a social impact company who empower survivors of human trafficking in the UK and abroad, through fairtrade fashion and accessories, joined other small business owners at a special small business Christmas Market at The Treasury’s Internal Drum attended by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne.
Rachel Salway who runs a fair trade fashion and accessories company, started her business after a series of trips to India and Africa that changed her life. “I was devastated by the amount of poverty I saw in these countries, and doing nothing about it was not an option for me” said Rachel of Westfield, Sheffield. ‘’I started to work with different organisations to provide life changing skills and training, and empower marginalised communities and people groups around the world, bringing them economic independence and hope.”
Rachel Salway has an outlet for her fashion and accessories in Dale Street, Radcliffe, Manchester. This property is owned by London and Associated Properties and is in charitable use by the group. See our case studies: http://bit.ly/1PYCP5e
