The South East was one of 2019’s most hotly-contested regions in the Awards this year and the judges chose Little Angels for striving to include every child and support their families regardless of circumstance.
Rufus Bazley, Director of Marketing at BusinessesForSale.com says, “2019 was a record year for Small Business Big Heart entries so achieving regional finalist position is incredible. Little Angels ensures continuous and consistent care for children who are dealing with difficulties. Their open door policy has been a lifeline to many families in times of need. I’d like to congratulate all the staff and wish them every success in the next and final round of judging.”
Nicola Scott, Deputy Manager at Little Angels says, “We are thrilled and amazed to be a finalist for this year’s awards. We are a small family-run nursery that enjoys being part of the community. The community have also taken us to their hearts and are building a new purpose-built nursery for us to accommodate the children of the growing village”
Little Angels also provide a vital breakfast and after-school club for all the families that live in the village which is very busy. Little Angels provide a First Aid tent for all village functions and will be supporting the next village fundraising event with a teddy bears picnic.
If Little Angels goes on to win the Small Business Big Heart Awards Gold prize it will receive £1,000 to donate to any good cause of its choice.
Little Angels is one of two finalists from the South East, the other is Grandad’s Front Room, a social enterprise based in Bognor Regis. This is the first year more than one finalist has been selected from the region, this is a result of a greater volume of entrants and a higher standard overall. In total there are 18 regional finalists across the country.
The overall winner of the 2019 Small Business Big Heart Award in association with BusinessesForSale.com will be announced on 15 September.
