Wow this year has flown by so quick- I can't believe we are in October already! This summer has been very exciting, We were nominated for two local business awards, something that this time last year I could only dream about! The York press local business award- best new business and The minster FM listeners choice award- Best Specialist Retailer
The most exciting news so far this year however has to be winning the #SBS award, chosen by Theo Paphitis himself- being a huge dragons den fan you can imagine my excitement to find that he was retweeting me to his hundreds of thousands of followers on Twitter!
To enter #SBS you tweet about your business in 160 characters to Theo on a Sunday evening, He then chooses 5 of his favorites to win a #SBS award the following Monday, I was not only fortunate to be chosen by Theo but was picked the very first time that I tweeted him, which makes me feel very overwhelmed that he saw something special about 'Where Bluebirds Fly' straight away!
Being an #sbs winner means I can now display my products on Theo's exclusive #sbs store website and also attend his annual conference and awards ceremony next February where I will get to meet him in person and receive my award- look out for some photos next year!
I really am over the moon with the warm reception that Where Bluebirds Fly has received this year and I am so thankful to the princes trust for their continued support!
I am so exited to see what is to come next!
Thank you so much to all my wonderful customers and supporters for helping Where Bluebirds Fly to achieve so much in such a short amount of time!
