Small Business Saturday 2021

14th December 2021 / Posted by CRP Team

The Small Business Saturday Tour 2021 travelled across the UK from Monday 1st November to Wednesday 1st December, calling at different towns and cities for five weeks! CRP tagged along with Westminster City Council and Cycle Confident to showcase the CAV4 cargo bike scheme – take a look at the live video.  

Starting at COP26 in Glasgow, ‘The Tour’ visited twenty-four British towns and cities to support, inspire and highlight the six million small businesses across the UK, as part of the countdown to Small Business Saturday.

As the tour stopped in Soho, CRP showcased the CAV4 cargo bike scheme, which can save small businesses time and money on deliveries throughout the festive season! Free hours of bike and rider are available for all businesses, community organisations, non-profits and charities in Soho, Northbank, Covent Garden and surrounding areas. Please see here for more information.

This year ‘The Tour’ showcased an electric vehicle fleet. This was implemented following the fact that 97% of small businesses say that sustainability is important to their organisation (according to research by BT Skills for Tomorrow and Small Business Britain).

For more information about the CAV4 cargo bike scheme and to sign up to use free hours, please contact CRP Project Manager Kate Fenton.
