The Glamping Orchard is thrilled to receive a ‘Small Business Sunday’ award from former ‘Dragon’ Theo Paphitis.
In February Ali Parker from The Glamping Orchard travelled to meet Theo Paphitis at the 2017 #SBS winner event in Birmingham.
Ali Parker, from Gloucestershire, said: “We’ve had a whirlwind year, transforming a 1950’s The Warwick Knight caravan into a shining Knight of armour, it’s been a true labour of love renovation. We’ve only just launched our new glamping venture as a result of the success with The Warwick Knight and it is great to have support from Theo, recognising our hard work and it is a huge privilege that he believes in our glamping business and that he has helped spread the word about what we do to his following.”
As a winner, Ali became part of the #SBS club and was invited to the annual business event held at the ICC in Birmingham, in February, where The Glamping Orchard received their award personally by Theo. The day showcased the very best of small business with workshops, networking opportunities and the chance to speak with business experts throughout the day.
Businesses were also able to question a panel of experts to find out invaluable information during the event with a question panel consisting of Theo, Dragon’s Den Deborah Meaden and JML founder John Mills.
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 and Shop #SBS will also give a valuable profile to the winners chosen and I wish The Glamping Orchard every success.”
