Small Business 100 Cattermole Electrical - Monday 16 September
In the 100 days running up to Small Business Saturday, the campaign will spotlight each of the Small Biz 100 as part of its mission to celebrate and support small businesses. Each company has been allocated a day where celebrations will focus on them and they will be profiled in the media and on Small Business Saturday's social media pages.
For Adam Cattermole, FSB member, of Cattermole Electrical which specialises in the repair, servicing, and sale of kitchen appliances, the news comes at a difficult time. Adam, aged 36, has recently been diagnosed with an incredibly rare type of terminal bowel cancer, and hopes the Small Biz 100 campaign will help raise awareness of his fundraising and of bowel cancer in young people. Adam commented: "It's not the way I wanted to promote my SBS 100 day but these are the cards I've been dealt. I want people far and wide to know how cancer can hit anyone at anytime.
The Derby business community has been banding together and offering help, time, prizes and anything they can which has been overwhelming." Unfortunately, the best line of treatment for Adam is not available on the NHS and one round of treatment, which lasts three months, has been estimated to cost around £20,000 so a Go Fund Me page has been launched with over £35,000 donated already.
