SOCIAL SATURDAY 2015

Social Saturday encourages consumers to use their purchasing power to make a positive difference. Social Saturday 2015 on 10 October built on the successes of 2014’s inaugural event with more than 80 social enterprise led events happening throughout the UK. From pop-up markets to film-screenings, dinner parties to open-mic events – Social Saturday shone a spotlight on the great work social enterprises do across the country.

The campaign had a Twitter reach of more than 10 million, was trending on the day and saw Twitter involvement from Jamie Oliver, Number 10 Downing Street and comedian Chris Addison.
