Celebrating Small Businesses
The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) is the UK’s leading non-profit business campaigner, focused on delivering change that supports smaller businesses to grow and succeed. Their Small Business Awards recognise and celebrate the huge contribution that smaller businesses and the self-employed make to the UK.
Their Sustainability Award is given to the most ethical, socially responsible, or green business, and in 2023 they decided that was Y.OU Underwear! We are very touched and humbled to win this FSB Small Business Award in the South East region, especially as so many of our other favourite brands were nominated too, like our friend and local Oxford supplier Neve's Bees. Congrats to all winners!
Sarah Jordan, our CEO & Founder commented on the win: “I I was so thrilled to win this award – the FSB is a great supporter of small businesses and getting this recognition from such a respected industry body is amazing. And even better when it’s sponsored by HSBC! It’s great validation for what we’re trying to do as a business and I’m looking forward to representing the South East in the national finals in May. Wish us luck!”
We’re now looking forward to the UK final on 18th May, when winners from the Regional awards finals go through to the FSB Awards UK Final, with a chance for us to win the whole Sustainability category!
We’re sure we’ll have tough competition from some other amazing small businesses, so fingers crossed! In the meantime, you can read all about Y.O.U Underwear’s other award wins here.
