Rhondda based Easterkins gets certificate from former Dragons Den Dragon Theo Paphitis

Rhondda based firm has received a business boost from Retail Entrepreneur Theo Paphitis. In August 2020, Emma Easterowner of Easterkins, tweeted Theo about her business during ‘Small Business Sunday’ and was one of six weekly winners to gain a retweet by Theo to his near half a million Twitter followers. The weekly initiative, set up by Theo in 2010, now has over 3,000 #SBS winners and supports small businesses in the UK.

Business and retail entrepreneur and self-confessed Shopkeeper, Theo re‐tweeted Easterkins's message to his almost 500,000 followers and as a result, Easterkins.co.uk has gained more followers and extra orders for their handmade organic baby and children's clothing.  They are also profiled on the #SBS website (www.theopaphitissbs.com) that is exclusive to all Small Business Sunday winners.

Small business champion and Ryman Stationery, Robert Dyas and Boux Avenue Chairman, Theo Paphitis, said: “We are thrilled to welcome new #SBS members every week and highlight just how important it is to support our small businesses here in the UK. My vision is that everyone who has ever won an #SBS re-tweet from me becomes part of a friendly club; like-minded individuals who can share successes and learnings. The website will also give a valuable profile to the winners chosen and I wish Easterkins every success.”

Due to Covid, the SBS Event was cancelled in 2021, so Emma and her fellow winners had to wait until February 2022 to receive their certificates from Theo.

SBS Event 2022 took place on February 25th at the ICC in Birmingham, it was a day filled with networking, one to one's and lots of inspiring talks from the likes of Tiny Box Managing Director Rachel Watkyn, Kypros Kyprianou, Theo Paphitis Retail Group CEO and current Dragons Den Dragon Touker Suleyman.

Six lucky businesses are re‐tweeted every Monday at 8 PM and then invited to enter their profile on the new website, attend the annual #SBS networking event and take advantage of the networking opportunities.
