Anglia was one of 2019’s most hotly-contested regions in the Awards this year and the judges chose Cox’s at the Lighthouse for the support it gives local charity Little Miracles, the fundraising it runs for the Fisherman’s Mission and the many random acts of kindness it undertakes that impact so powerfully on the community.
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. Although the business is relatively new its founder Mick Cox was keen to establish the business in the community and his passion permeated from the entry we received. I’d like to congratulate Mick and the staff on their achievement and wish them every success in the next and final round of judging.”
Mick Cox adds, “I am absolutely thrilled to be named as a regional finalist in the Small Business Big Heart Awards. When I started it was paramount to create a business with a high emphasis on community spirit. We collect food for St Neots Foodbanks, we donate to Three Pillars which helps the homeless, we support local schools with raffle prizes and try to get involved in community projects.”
If Cox’s at the Lighthouse 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.
Cox’s at the Lighthouse is one of two finalists from Anglia, the other is Krafft Jewellers in Chelmsford. 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.
