We are thrilled to announce that we are the 'Community Business of the Year' Silver Winner at the SME National Business Awards 2023. After achieving gold at the SME Hertfordshire Business Awards in September we were delighted to find out that we had been entered into the National Business Awards to be held at Wembley Stadium on 1st December.
Competing against 10 other finalists in the Community Business of the Year category from across the UK, we really looked forward to attending the black tie event and the exciting opportunity to connect with organisations from a wider network. 
Our CEO, Lynne Misner was absolutely thrilled to receive the Silver Winner award on behalf of Small Acts of Kindness. She commented ‘To receive national recognition for our work is truly humbling. Our achievements and the impact we have is a credit to the endless and quite incredible acts of kindness that our volunteers, partners, supporters and funders perform.  Partnership working is at the core of what we do and this is reflected in the reach that we have throughout the communities with which we operate. It is an absolute privilege and honour to be recognised as a successful Community Business on a national platform and we share this wonderful award and extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who makes our work possible.’
The SME National Business Awards are made up of 20 categories that allow any successful business in the UK to enter these prestigious awards.  All entries are judged by a national panel of judges. The Community Business category celebrates both Community Businesses and Not for Profit Organisations. What these businesses have in common is that their focus is on positively benefitting society.
